The Question Club
so, after seeing the infamous Christo Gates today in Central Park, I got into a huge debate with several of my friends, one that has been spreading around the city these past few weeks. |
Anyway,for those who don't know, Christio and Jeanne-Claude are these two artists who do all these insanely large scale works of art, along the lines of wrapping the Reichstag in fabric and covering the Califonia valleys with hundreds of umbrellas. Here in New York, they filled all the pathways in Central Park with 15,000 bright orange ( gates.Collapse )
Here's their website, for more info
Point is, do you think this is art? my friend claimed it was nothing more than a large scale ad for Home Depot, but I personally really liked them. Yes, they aren't paintings that were slaved over, or the likes, but I thought they were quite interesting, and I've never really seen anything like them.
Anyway, that's where I stand....what about you?
