The work of art is a scream of freedom
Christo and Jeanne-Claude’s art is the creation of temporary, beautiful objects on a vast scale of specific outdoor sites. It is in the populist nature of their thinking that they believe people should have intense and memorable experiences of art outside museums. Their projects do not satisfy our practical needs. No causes are pleaded. They are their own reason for being. They are tributes to artistic freedom. As artists, Christo and Jeanne-Claude are as unclassificable as their art. They are at once painters and sculptores, and yet neither, just Christo and Jeanne-Claude.
