Christo: Monuments and Projects

Christo: Monuments and Projects, installation view, Institute of Contemporary Art, University of Pennsylvania

The fundamental sensibility and concerns of Christo’s art were evident almost from his first independent efforts, and while they have not changed radically since that time, they have broadened and deepened and have found more cogent and certain form. Because Christo found his imaginative way early, like many of his contemporaries in a precocious post-war generation, one now writes of this artist in his thirty-third year not as the possessor of talent and promise but as the recognized creator of a substantial, exceptionally innovative and masterful body of work that spans a full decade of accomplishment.
