Arc de Triomphe, wrapped

From Sept. 19 to Oct. 4, 2020, the
Arc de Triomphe will be transformed
by the artist Christo. Photos: André
Grossmann; © 2019 Christo.

hristo, the artist known for environmental art installations, is returning
to Paris for an exciting new project, L'Arc de Triomphe, Wrapped (Project
for Paris, Place de l'Étoile-Charles de Gaulle).
The idea was conceived 60 years ago when Christo lived in a small room
near Arc de Triomphe. He made several studies of the project, including a
photomontage of the arch wrapped. It was during this period that Christo and
his wife and artistic partner, Jeanne-Claude, who passed away in 2009, began
creating works of art in public spaces, including wrapping a public building.
When the work is complete, Parisians will be able to see the Arc de
Triomphe wrapped in 269,097 square feet of recyclable polypropylene fabric
in silvery blue, topped with 22,965 feet of red rope. Originally planned for an
unveiling in the spring, the project was postponed until fall to ensure the
protection of kestrel falcons that nest on the arch.
The project, a collaboration with the Centre des Monuments Nationaux
and the Centre Pompidou, will also include an exhibition at the Centre Georges
Pompidou from March 18 to June 15, 2020. It will trace the life and work of
Christo and Jeanne-Claude during their Paris years from 1958 to 1964, as
well as the story of their The Pont-Neuf Wrapped, Project for Paris, 1975-85.
