Curator Melissa Blanchflower leads a tour of Christo and Jeanne-Claude: Barrels and The Mastaba (1958–2018). BSL interpretation is available on request for all our Saturday Talks.
Christo and Jeanne-Claude are celebrated for their ambitious sculptural works that intervene in urban and natural landscapes around the world and temporarily alter both the physical form and visual appearances of sites. This summer, in the heart of London, the Serpentine Galleries presents a major exhibition of their work, which draws on the artists’ history of barrel artworks. Simultaneously, Christo will present The Mastaba (Project for London, Hyde Park, Serpentine Lake), a temporary floating sculpture on The Serpentine lake.
