Christo & Jeanne-Claude. Urban Projects
“Christo and Jeanne-Claude. Urban Projects” is the first retrospective museum exhibition since the Protected content of the urban projects created by Christo and Jeanne-Claude. It will be shown from the 25th of October Protected content the 25th of February Protected content Protected content
A unique opportunity to gain a comprehensive insight into the creative process of this unclassifiable artist couple.
To evoke a number of urban projects by Christo and Jeanne-Claude, the exhibition seeks through a careful selection of around eighty original works, whether or not these were ever carried out, ranging from Wall of Oil Barrels, Rue Visconti, Paris, Protected content to the important urban project The Gates that Christo and Jeanne-Claude realized for the city of New York in Protected content .
These urban works of art were created by temporarily appropriating buildings, monuments or public places with a deeply symbolic value.
The works are selected and displayed in such a way as to emphasise the crucial importance of drawing in the genesis, evolution and aesthetic crystallisation of each of the projects. Christo sees drawing as “a path towards the real” and indulges this passion daily.
The exhibition presents a series of emblematic works, from the first schematic sketches, usually in small format, to the final drawings, complex and often large-format collages in which colour, textural effects and volume bring out their visionary character, offering a real foretaste of the actual in situ projects.
Regarding the ticket price, when you go to the website link, at the bottom you can book your ticket online, but they somehow don't give the price in advance.
I will have a look when the exhibition opens what the price at the counter is and let you know.
It should be in the usual (upper) price range for art exhibitions in Brussels.
If you like, we can go for a drink afterwards.
I am looking forward to enjoying this exhibition with you.
