The late David C. Copley (1952–2012) was one of MCASD’s most passionate patrons and generous trustees. He was also the most prolific collector of Christo and Jeanne-Claude’s work in the United States.
Christo is best known for the monumental projects he and his late wife and collaborator Jeanne‑Claude accomplished over nearly four decades. These include the 24-1/2 mile long Running Fence in California’s Sonoma and Marin Counties (1976), the Wrapped Reichstag in Berlin (1995), and the epic-scale crowd pleaser The Gates (2005), which comprised 7053 fabric banners that spanned the walkways of New York’s Central Park.
"X-TO+J-C" will present the artist’s important Wrapped Package (1960) alongside many drawings and collages related to his early wrapped objects — chairs, road signs, motorcycles, and other commonplace items that disrupt our relationship to the everyday through their concealment.
