Ingrid and Thomas Jochheim Collection
The exhibition Christo and Jeanne-Claude: Projects 1963—2020, Ingrid and Thomas Jochheim Collection at the PalaisPopulaire presents what is probably the world’s most famous artistic duo: Christo and Jeanne-Claude succeeded in breaking through the narrow boundaries of the art business and attracting the interest of a broad public in their spectacular large-scale projects. On display are works created between 1963 and 2019, including early objects, large-format drawing tableaux, as well as editions and prints. After wrapping everyday objects in foil and binding them with cord Christo and Jeanne-Claude increasingly devoted themselves to artistic transformations and accentuations of entire landscapes or architectures. Between 1962 and 2019, twenty-three projects were realized on different continents. After the death of his wife in 2009, Christo continued the projects he planned with her. Christo died this year on May 31th a few days before his 85th birthday.
