A very great exhibition poster to reveal how an incredible large art installation came to life!

The project started in 1972, where the artists Christo and Jeanne-Claude began preparations for Running Fence. The fence was made from fabrics and measured 5.5 meters high and 40 kilometres long and was placed in California. The installation covered lands of 59 ranchers who had to be convinced that a fence though their property was a good idea. Finally in 1976 the art installation was completed and was visible for two weeks before it was removed.

Louisiana (Danish Museum of Modern Art) is located in Humlebæk north of Copenhagen, Denmark. The museum was opened its doors in 1958 and with its approximately 600,000 annual visitors, is one of Denmark's most visited museums and among the ten most visited tourist attractions. Louisiana is a collection of contemporary art, but also an interaction between art, architecture and landscape.

Louisiana got his name from court master Alexander Brun, who built a villa on the site in 1855. The villa's name is probably inspired by the three women he married - all three were named Louise. The founder of Louisiana chose to keep the name from the country house he subsequently transformed into a museum. The villa is now a part of the museum.

Thanks for watching and please let me know if you have any questions.
