January 11th, 2017

christo-running-fence-via-luis-camnitzerConceptual artist Luis Camnitzer has started a petition calling on Donald Trump to commission Christo to design and build the wall between the United States and Mexico.   Christo had previously worked on a Running Fence project in California during the 1970s, as the artist notes in his petition.  “Though only 24.5 miles long then, in full length today it would transform a racist project into a public art event, and help improve the image of the U.S. with a cultural veneer,” he continues.
