An extensive anthological catalogue exhibition dedicated to Christo and Jean-Claude, the couple who wrapped public buildings in fabric and rope. The catalogue is divided into two main sections: the first is dedicated to the works of art belonging to the early years of artistic production (1958-1968), the second to the projects realized in public spaces from 1968 to today. Of each creative period, which is characterized by variegated works with distinctive qualities, it will also be possible to look at the introductory extracts that have been written by some of the most insightful champions of Christo and Jeanne-Claude’s work. These are close and comprehensive commentary texts that consent an in-depth analysis of this famous couple’s motivations, style and original expressive depiction of art. Each project included in the second part of the catalogue is also accompanied by the press releases originally written and edited by the artists themselves as official presentation to the general public. The strength of these documents lies in the fact that they resume the technical and operational descriptions of each accomplishment.
The catalogue is completed by a rich section of appendixes, inclusive of a biography, a partial list of solo exhibitions, a selected bibliography and the list of works.
