Culture Shock

Christo and Jeanne-Claude Have Always Gone Big

The year 1962 saw Christo and Jeanne-Claude barricading a Paris street with 89 rusted oil barrels to protest the Berlin Wall, constructed in 1961. And that was just small potatoes compared to their later works. For 10 weeks in 1969, an entire Australian coastline was wrapped by the artists in a million square miles of glistening erosion-control fabric and 35 miles of rope. In 1991, they erected 3,100 umbrellas across sister sites in the US and Japan. The 20-foot shades remained in place just over three weeks. In New York’s Central Park in 2005, they installed over 7,500 saffron-curtained “gates” snaking 23 miles along tree-lined walkways. “The Gates” stayed up for just 16 days.

“La Nao de China” by Catalina Delgado-Trunk, 2006, hand-cut paper over collage

Ipso facto X-Acto

Any way you slice it, nothing’s quite like paper art. Traditional papel picado is a cheerful, humble Mexican papercraft often used to adorn and embellish public spaces. But ¡Papel! Pico, Rico y Chico, opening at the National Hispanic Cultural Center (1701 Fourth Street SW) on Friday, June 20, at 6pm, proves the form’s wondrous flexibility.
