In 1984, environmental artist Christo Javacheff and his wife Jeanne-Claude Denat de Guillebon finally managed to convince the mayor of Paris (Jacques Chirac) to allow a major public art display, which involved draping the Pont de Neuf bridge with fabric (“like a 2nd skin”). This temporary display lasted 14 days, and raised a number of eyebrows among onlookers — pointing to questions of “what is art?” and “why did those crazy artists do this?”.
