One of Albert Maysles’s favourite moments with Christo occurred during one of 17 hearings the artist had to attend to obtain permission for Running Fence. “Some of the ranchers were complaining that it wasn’t art,” he remembered. “Then one farmer’s wife stood up and said, ‘Sometimes I cook a meal for three hours, and it’s a work of art. But then it’s eaten, and it’s gone.‘ Ah! That was so great! She got it.”
