Marilyn Hagberg interviews the controversial artist Christo (1935 - ) on the occasion of his Oakland Museum exhibition. Called the Cecil B. DeMille of conceptual art, Christo created "the most publicized work of art in the last decade," a 1300-foot nylon curtain stretched across a Rocky Mountain valley in Colorado. Trained in the Soviet school of social realism, Christo discusses his bizarre theories of art and his next art project, a 24 1/2-mile nylon fence planned for the San Francisco Bay Area.
