2016-06-21 // art featured popular

The famous artist Christo has unveiled his latest work, a monumental installation created in collaboration with artist Jeanne-Claude. For this new performance, the duo imagined a gigantic floating structure on Lake Iseo in Italy, which allows visitors to walk on water and to reach an island on the lake. This project was conceived in 1970 but could not be launched until 2014. Entitled Floating Piers, this installation will be accessible to the public until July 3, 2016.
