Christo - Early works
Gagosian is pleased to announce a presentation of early works by Christo, curated by Elena Geuna. The exhibition is the inaugural project in the Gagosian Open series of off-site projects.
For the first presentation in the series, early works by Christo will be set in dialogue with a Grade II–listed Georgian house in London’s East End. Foreshadowing the artist’s large-scale temporary public projects, these sculptural works see everyday objects veiled in fabric or plastic and bound with rope or twine.
They present an artist who, even at this formative stage of his career, was responding creatively to domestic and urban environments, drawing attention to overlooked details by obscuring them from view.
