Artist Christo has passed away

Last Sunday, on May 31, the artist Christo has passed away at the age of 84 in New York. Together with his wife Jeanne-Claude (1935 - 2009), he became known all over the world because of their monumental projects like ‘Wrapped Reichstag’‘Surrounded Islands Miami’, ‘The Mastaba’‘Floating Piers’‘The Gates’ en ‘Pont Neuf Wrapped’.

With their extraordinary projects,Christo and Jeanne-Claude all over the world brought people together to share an unforgettable experience. They have always made it clear that their not-yet realised projects should also be continued even after their death. That is why 'l'Arc de Triomphe, Wrapped' will be continued next year as planned: from September 18 - October 3, 2021.
