An Afternoon About Christo 

When: Sun., March 28, 12 p.m. 2010
Christo is coming. To the art-world elite, you can bet they’re going to be in attendence at the mid-April event. To most of you, that may only trigger a vague memory of some gates in Central Park and not much else. So if you don’t know too much about the guy (but still want to impress your friends), educate yourself with a screening of two Christo-related documentaries at Redux. Islands, from 1987, tells the story of Christo’s decision to decorate bodies of land in Miami’s Biscayne Bay with pink fabric. Umbrellas, from 1994, shows his installation of thousands of umbrellas in the rice farms of Japan and the cattle ranches of California. The films were made by the Maysles brothers, the minds behind the classic documentary Grey Gardens. Marian Mazzone, chair of the department of art history at the College of Charleston, and Jarod Charzewski, a visiting assistant professor of sculpture, will lead a discussion after each film. —Susan Cohen
