Christo & Jeanne-Claude: The Gates Portfolio.pdf


In February 2005, Christo and Jeanne-Claude will complete a monumental work of art in New York City’s Central Park. The project, first conceived in 1979, will feature 7500 16-foot-high vinyl gates lining the park’s paths, from which will hang saffron-colored fabric panels. Seen from the buildings surrounding the park, The Gates will look like a golden, flowing river, while those walking through them will experience the ambience of a fluid, golden ceiling. Financed entirely by artists through their C.V.J. Corporation, The Gates are to be fabricated and assembled in local factories and installed by local workers, thus providing employment for thousands of New York City residents. The temporary work of art will remain in place for 16 days, after which it will be disassembled and the materials recycled. The installation will be free for all visitors, who can continue to use Central Park undisturbed during the whole process. 14 full color prints perfect for framing.

So we were quite thrilled when asked to design a collector piece documenting that gigantic project. ...
