L'Arc de Triomphe, Wrapped / Exhibition at Centre Pompidou

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Christo, the Centre des Monuments Nationaux and the Centre Pompidou have jointly decided to postpone, by one year, L’Arc de Triomphe, Wrapped, initially planned for the fall 2020. The new dates are: Saturday, September 18 to Sunday, October 3, 2021.

The exhibition at the Centre Pompidou Christo and Jeanne-Claude. Paris! – which was to open this March and present the Parisian years of the artists’ work, as well as their iconic project The Pont Neuf Wrapped, Paris, 1975-1985 – will open as soon as the Centre Pompidou is able to welcome visitors again.
