Our weekly focus on the moving image and art in the streets. And other oddities.
1. Christo and Jeanne-Claude, a Final Triumph in Paris
BSA Special Feature: Christo and Jeanne-Claude, a Final Triumph in Paris
Bet you are wondering when the big unveiling is! Dying to see what is underneath?
A tribute to the artists Christo and Jeanne-Claude, famous for their large scale, site specific outdoor installation, this is the final triumph! Or Triomphe, as you may wish.
Climbers, cloth, and red rope have encased the famous monument and star that lies at the center of twelve radiating avenues, L’Arc de Triomphe this month – a public celebration of the work of the two artists and their lifetime of work together.
Today we dedicate Film Friday to this project and the various ways it is being described and interacted with by the public.
