CRISTO

REPORTAGE

The Christo and Jeanne-Claude team has created the Arc de Triomphe, Wrapped, Paris, 1961-2021, as Christo wished this project to be continued after his death.

On view for 16 days from Saturday, September 18th to Sunday, October 3rd, 2021 Arc de Triomphe, Wrapped, Paris, 1961-2021 will use 25,000 square meters of recyclable polypropylene fabric in silvery blue, and 3,000 meters of red rope of the same fabric. 

I went one morning and photographed this iconic monument, wrapped entirely in a shiny dress of fabric.
