Christo and Jeanne-Claude

Running Fence (plates)

Sold to benefit Independent Curators International, a community-building nonprofit supporting experimental curatorial projects since 1975.

Running Fence (plates), 2021, depicts Christo and Jeanne-Claude’s 1976 Running Fence, the iconic installation that ran 24.5 miles through Sonoma and Marin Counties, California, and into the Pacific Ocean. Based on a preparatory drawing from 1972-76, the design runs across a set of three porcelain plates.

Running Fence consisted of 42 months of collaborative efforts and the temporary use of the hills, the sky, and the ocean. Once removed, the work left no visible traces and all materials were given to the ranchers whose participation was crucial to the project’s success. Shortly after, in 1979, Christo and Jeanne-Claude joined the Board of Trustees of ICI. Christo continued serving on ICI’s Board until his passing in 2020.
