40 years Kaldor Public Art Projects

2 October 2009 – 14 February 2010
Art Gallery of New South Wales

An extensive review of works comissioned by Kaldor Public Art Projects is set to open in October '09 at the AGNSW. The exhibition looks at the amazing projects and performances that Kaldor brought (and continues to bring) to Australia as a pioneer of large scale public art events, that are now typical of Australian art galleries and festivals . These projects not only lifted the level of installation expertise and conceptual standards in the Australian art scene but most importantly brought memorable art projects to the general public. People still (well some people I unfortunately was not yet born) remember when Little Bay in Sydney was wrapped by Christo and Jean-Claude in their work Wrapped Coast (1969) or when Koons' Puppy (1995) (this one I do remember) was on the front lawn of the MCA , and that is something that is worth celebrating.
