Invitation, "Christo: Running Fence – Documentation – 1972-1976", 1980. Winnipeg Art Gallery.
French artist Christo visits the WAG to deliver a public lecture and discussion on his famous land art project Running Fence, a 24-mile fabric fence running through Northern California.
“Art is very irrational,” Christo maintains, “Nobody really needs a Running Fence. Nobody needs a wrapping of the Reichstag. But that is my language. That is how I express myself.” (November 28, 1980, Winnipeg Free Press).
