Christo and Jeanne-Claude, Paris!

July 1, 2020 - October 19, 2020

The Centre Pompidou presents a major exhibition retracing artists Christo and Jeanne-Claude’s years in Paris and the incredible story of The Pont-Neuf Wrapped, Paris, 1975-1985. During the seven years Christo lived in Paris, he broke free from the boundaries of painting and started working on monumental and ephemeral artworks for the city. The show is divided in two sections: the first one presents around 80 works from 1958, the year Christo and Jeanne-Claude met, until 1964, when they left Paris for New York. The second section documents the period leading up to the creation of The Pont-Neuf Wrapped, Paris, 1975-1985, with a collection of 300 items, including original drawings and collages, photographs, engineering studies and original components of the realized project. “Paris !” is also a prelude to the project L’Arc de triomphe, Wrapped which will be on view from September 18 to October 3, 2021.
