Created by British artist Michael Landy, this exhibition will survey the rich history of Kaldor Public Art Projects using artworks, archival materials and reconstructions of past projects. From Christo and Jeanne-Claude’s Wrapped coast (1969) to Jeff Koons’ Puppy (1995), Marina Abramovic’s In residence (2015), Jonathan Jones’ barrangal dyara (skin and bones) (2016) and numerous other projects, it revisits some of the most iconic large-scale artworks to have been presented in Australia.
A collaboration between Kaldor Public Art Projects and the Art Gallery of NSW.
