The Mastaba (Project for London, Hyde Park, Serpentine Lake)
Monday 18th Jun 2018 - Sunday 23rd Sep 2018
Artist Christo has created a temporary sculpture in Hyde Park, titled The Mastaba (Project for London, Hyde Park, Serpentine Lake), which will float on the Serpentine Lake from 18 June (weather permitting) to 23 September 2018. This will be the artist's first major public, outdoor work in the UK. The temporary sculpture will coincide with an exhibition at the Serpentine Galleries of Christo and Jeanne–Claude’s work (19 June to 9 September 2018), which will include sculptures, drawings, collages and photographs spanning more than 60 years. Both projects draw on Christo and Jeanne-Claude’s history of barrel artworks and will be an unprecedented opportunity for visitors to experience the work of one of the most pioneering artists working today.
