Exhibition Images


Christo and Jeanne-Claude: Over The River, a Work in Progress, an exhibition of more than 150 photographs, collages, drawings, and maps, will chronicle the artists’ process as they prepare to assemble and suspend massive silvery fabric panels horizontally over the Arkansas River in Colorado.

Highlighting The Phillips Collection’s longstanding commitment to representing important developments in modern and contemporary art, the exhibition at the Phillips will be followed by a national tour.

The Phillips’s exhibition will trace the development of this ambitious project over the past 16 years by displaying the process and materials that will be used to accomplish the artistic and engineering feat.

The exhibition is organized by The Phillips Collection.
