Christo and Jeanne-Claude: L’Arc de Triomphe, Wrapped (Project for Paris)
8 January 2020
The Bulgarian-born French artist Christo and his late whife Jeanne-Claude first had the idea of wrapping the Arc de Triomphe when they rented a small flat nearby from 1958 to 1964. Their dream will come true this autumn when the imposing monument will be shrouded in a silvery blue fabric, tied by 7,000 meters of red rope.
On display from 18 March - 15 June 2020
