🗿Christo and Jeanne-Claude were a collaborative artist duo known for their monumental environmental installations.

Wrapped Reichstag, Berlin, 1971-95

"We borrow space and create gentle disturbances for a few days," Christo once said.

Surrounded Islands, Biscayne Bay, Greater Miami, Florida, 1980-83

"We inherit everything that is inherent in the space to become part of the work of art."

Wrapped Coast, One Million Square Feet, Little Bay, Sydney, Australia, 1968-69

Christo and Jeanne-Claude's interventions in the natural world and the built environment altered both the physical form and the visual experience of the sites, thereby allowing viewers to perceive and understand the locations with a new appreciation of their formal, energetic, and volumetric qualities. 

The Gates, Central Park, New York City, 1979-2005
