Christo and Jeanne-Claude

  • It has been proposed that this page, Christo and Jeanne-Claude, be titled, "Christo and Jeanne-Claude".
    In May 1983, Christo Vladimirov Javacheff and Jeanne-Claude Denat de Guillebon surrounded 11 islands in Miami's Biscayne Bay with 6.5 million square feet of pink woven polypropylene fabric.

Christo (born as Christo Vladimirov Javacheff on June 13, 1935) and Jeanne-Claude (born Jeanne-Claude Denat de Guillebon on June 13, 1935) are married installation artists who are best known for wrapping large-scale objects in fabric (for example the Reichstag in Berlin).

The artists have been active for a very long time: Their first collaboration ("Dockside Packages") dates back to 1961, and their most recent project ("The Gates") was completed in 2005.
