    schema:description ""The book celebrates the extraordinary oeuvre of Christo and Jeanne-Claude from their earliest projects up until their latest work, the Gates in Central Park, launched in February, 2005." "Famous for their fabric installations involving both urban and rural sites, Christo and Jeanne-Claude have created some of the most controversial and compelling artworks of the twentieth century. On either a moderate or monumental scale, they offer a powerful artistic experience that can be transcendental or outrageous, depending on one's perspective. Christo and Jeanne-Claude obscure objects, buildings and landscaping by wrapping them, with the intent that reducing visual accessibility enables these to be perceived in entirely new ways. Their art spans the whole globe and their artistic language is perceived as one of compelling immediacy." "Christo and Jeanne-Claude fund all their projects - which cost nothing to visitors - by means of aesthetic recycling, that is, the sale of original works created in connection with their projects. In this way, the financial risk for each major project is borne by the artists, not by the purchasers of their works."--Jacket."@en ;
