To evoke a number of urban projects by Christo and Jeanne-Claude, the exhibition seeks through a careful selection of around eighty original works, whether or not these were ever carried out, ranging from Wall of Oil Barrels, Rue Visconti, Paris, 1961-62 up to the important urban project The Gates that Christo and Jeanne-Claude realized for the city of New York in 2005. These urban works of art were created by temporarily appropriating buildings, monuments or public places with a deeply symbolic value.

The works are selected and displayed in such a way as to emphasise the crucial importance of drawing in the genesis, evolution and aesthetic crystallisation of each of the projects. Christo sees drawing as “a path towards the real” and indulges this passion daily.

The exhibition presents a series of emblematic works, from the first schematic sketches, usually in small format, to the final drawings, complex and often large-format collages in which colour, textural effects and volume bring out their visionary character, offering a real foretaste of the actual in situ projects.
