Christo and Jeanne-Claude Urban Projects at ING

ING Belgium, the Brussels-based bank has an established history in sponsoring art. The ING Art Centre is staging the first retrospective museum exhibition since the 1980s of urban projects created by Christo and Jeanne-Claude, with a multimedia guide created by Imagineear.

“The script for the guide is of exceptionally fine quality. Perhaps this should come as no surprise as it was written by art historian Matthias Koddenberg who has been a close friend of Christo and Jeanne-Claude’s for many years and who wrote the exhibition catalogue,” said Eleonore Heijboer, a founder of Imagineear and its Creative Director. “We worked in close collaboration with Matthias, the Christo team and the ING Belgium team throughout the project. Koddenberg’s script was presented to us in his native German and we translated it into English, Dutch and French before recording it in all these languages and editing and creating the tour’s design interface.”

ING Belgium views Christo and Jeanne-Claude. Urban Projects as “a unique opportunity to gain a comprehensive insight into the creative process of this unclassifiable artist couple”.

Around 80 original works will be on display, from schematic sketches to final drawings of urban art created by temporarily appropriating buildings, monuments or public places with deeply symbolic value. Large and complex collages will show the vision for projects before they were realised in situ.

l Christo and Jeanne-Claude. Urban Projects runs from 25th October until 25th February 2018.
