Christo is among the most admired and influential living artists in the world. Over the course of a monumental career spanning six decades, he and Jeanne-Claude, his wife and creative partner, forged a unique and radically democratic form of art-making that has made a profound impact on contemporary artistic practice. They are best known for large-scale, temporary outdoor works, including, among many others, The Floating Piers in Lake Iseo, Italy (2014–16); The Gates in New York City (1979–2005); Wrapped Reichstag in Berlin (1971–95); The Pont Neuf Wrapped in Paris (1975–85); and Surrounded Islands in Miami’s Biscayne Bay (1980-83). The work of Christo and Jeanne-Claude has been presented at numerous institutional venues including, most recently, in a major exhibition at Pérez Art Museum Miami. Commemorating the 35th anniversary of Surrounded Islands, the exhibition celebrated the indelible mark that this epic project left on Miami’s cultural history.
