LONDON.- Annely Juda Fine Art presents a major exhibition of the artists Christo and Jeanne-Claude, celebrating the friendship and longstanding relationship between the artists and the gallery, which has spanned over forty years.

This important exhibition at the longest-standing gallery worldwide to work with Christo and Jeanne- Claude is a unique opportunity to see the work of Christo, from the earliest pieces of Wrapped Cans, Storefronts and Packages from the late 50s and 60s to the collages, drawings and models connected with both realised and not-realised projects by Christo and Jeanne-Claude.

Of particular note in the exhibition are works connected to The Mastaba of Abu Dhabi: Project for the United Arab Emirates (first conceived in 1977) and for Over the River: Project for the Arkansas River, State of Colorado, conceived in 1992. Both projects are, after many years, nearing realisation.

In connection with the exhibition is a 184 page, fully illustrated, catalogue documenting the forty years of the artists and gallery working together, both on site at projects and in the gallery, seen through the 12 exhibitions which Annely Juda Fine Art has held over the past forty years. The catalogue includes an essay on the work of Christo and Jeanne-Claude written by art historian Matthias Koddenberg, who also conducted an interview with Christo and David Juda about their shared memories of working together along with both Annely and Jeanne-Claude.

The history of these projects is an example of the deep belief in and uncompromising dedication Christo and Jeanne-Claude have always had towards their work. They stand as examples of the way in which their art uniquely encompasses and shares its entire process of interaction with the world, from conception to realisation and viewing. Their art is realised despite the obstacles, without compromise and with the full integrity of its intention. Annely and David Juda recognized these concepts very early on and, as testimony, held the twelve exhibitions in support and in celebration of Christo and Jeanne-Claude's work since 1971.
