Christo and Jeanne-Claude

1995

(58 min.)

 

Christo and Jeanne-Claude met in Paris in 1958, and so began an extraordinary adventure in art, a series of spectacular public artworks in many parts of the world that reached its zenith with the wrapping of the German Parliament, the Reichstag, in Berlin in June 1995. For the 1968 edition of the Festival dei Due Mondi in Spoleto, they wrapped the fountain in the Piazza del Mercato and the lookout tower at the end of the Ponte delle Torri, the medieval aqueduct spanning from the old town to Monteluco. This film reviews all of their major projects since 1958, including Wrapped Coast (Australia, 1969); Valley Curtain (Colorado, 1972); Running Fence (California, 1976); Surrounded Islands (Miami, 1982); Pont Neuf (Paris, 1985); Umbrellas for Japan and California (1992); and Wrapped Reichstag (Berlin, 1995).
