Un livre  publié par Gallimard  accompagne l’exposition. Y figure une compilation des œuvres réunies dans Christo: Femmes 1962 – 1968. Il comprend également des photographies inédites, notamment  de  Charles Wilp extraites  de ses films  originaux, produits en 35mm qui  documentent l’empaquetage de femmes réalisé par Christo à Londres et à Düsseldorf. D’autres photographies illustrant le travail de l’artiste entre 1962 et 1968 sont également incluses : Christo empaquetant une femme chez Yves Klein à Paris en 1962, ou encore celles de son exposition monographique de 1968 à l’ICA de Philadelphie, lorsque Christo a empaqueté des femmes pour la dernière fois. Au sujet de ces travaux qui questionnent les surfaces tactiles du tissu utilisé pour empaqueter et transformer le corps féminin, Christo souligne que le « tissu est comme une seconde peau. ». Le livre retrace aussi l‘histoire de cette période de formation dans la carrière de Christo, comme de sa contribution à l’art contemporain.

The book, published by Gallimard, accompanies the exhibition. It provides a compilation of the work featured in Christo: Femmes 1962 – 1968, and includes never-before-published photographs as well as stills by Charles Wilp from his original 35mm films which document Christo’s wrapping of women in London and Düsseldorf. Additional photographs of the artist’s work between 1962 and 1968 are also included from Christo wrapping a woman in Yves Klein’s Paris home in 1962 to the 1968 solo show at the ICA Philadelphia, the last time Christo wrapped women. Referring to these works that explore the tactile surfaces of fabric used to wrap and transform the female body, Christo noted that the “fabric is like a second skin.” The book also tells the story of this formative period of Christo’s career and his contributions to contemporary art.
