“Christo and Jeanne-Claude: The Tom Golden Collection” now open until Jan. 17.

Christo and Jeanne-Claude are famous for their large-scale, environmental projects that have temporarily altered urban and rural landscapes in Europe, the United States, and Japan.  Each of the Christos’ projects, from the earliest to the most recent, exists only briefly in the world, but is anticipated with suspense for months and even years while being planned.  More closely related to architecture in their monumentality and realization than to traditional art forms, the Christos’ projects involve an incredible number of steps—logistical, political, social, and economic. The important role that this process plays in the Christos’ work is unique to these artists.
