Thinking ahead, Pérez Art Museum Miami planned fall exhibits in honor of its 35th anniversary in January. Since the milestone coincides with the 35th anniversary of a seminal artwork in the city’s history, it programmed Christo and Jeanne-Claude: Surrounded Islands, Biscayne Bay, Greater Miami, Florida, 1980-83 | A Documentary Exhibition from October 4, 2018 to February 17, 2019. The husband-and-wife artists, who simply went by their first names, encircled 11 islands with pink fabric for the site-specific art installation here. Though the global sensation lasted two weeks in 1983, it catapulted Miami into the international art scene. Christo (Jeanne-Claude passed away.), who loaned related works and archived materials, discusses the project and their prolific career on October 4. Its film directed by the Maysles brothers screens three days a week.
