Virgil Abloh on his Creative Connection with Christo

Paris | 17 September–3 October

As Christo’s longstanding ambition to wrap the Arc de Triomphe is posthumously realised in Paris, designer Virgil Abloh explains how Christo’s conceptual art will inspire the next generation to believe anything is possible. Join Sotheby’s Simon Shaw in conversation with the Louis Vuitton artistic director as they discuss Sotheby’s upcoming selling exhibition of works telling the story of Christo’s six decade dream. The historic exhibition ‘The Final Christo: Original Works for the Arc de Triomphe’ will take place at Sotheby’s Paris (17 September - 3 October). Each work will be available for private sale with proceeds to benefit both the L’Arc de Triomphe, Wrapped project, and the Christo and Jeanne-Claude Foundation, established to safeguard the artists’ legacy for future generations.
