About

Artist: Christo Title: Look Magazine Empaquete Year: 1965 Medium: Look Magazine wrapped in transparent polyethylene with cord, on black wooden support Edition: 100; signed and inscribed in black ink on the plastic wrapping; signed and numbered in black ink on label affixed to the reverse Dimensions: 22 x 18 1/8 x 1 1/2 in. (55.88 x 46.05 x 3.81 cm.) Certificate of Authenticity included Known for his projects that involve covering infrastructural and environmental landmarks in fabric, Christo also experimented with the tactile experience of smaller-scale projects, covering everyday objects in fabric or plastic and documenting the process with sketches and photographs. Christo exclusively financed his projects through donations and the sale of smaller works on paper that correlate with their installations in order to remain independent from sponsors and the control of public authorities. In 1965, Christo experimented with wrapping different editions of the bi-weekly general interest magazine called Look Magazine. The present work, featuring an image of the cultural icon, Jackie Onassis, is one of the most desirable images from this series.
