Kaldor Public Art Projects celebrates 50 Years

In 2019, Kaldor Public Art Projects celebrates 50 years of cultural exchange, through the development and presentation of 35 ambitious international art projects in Australia. Over the years, the Goethe-Institut has frequently collaborated with Kaldor Public Art Projects, and this partnership is continued in the current Making Art Public exhibition and program.
 
Key moments include the Gregor Schneider project 21 Beach Cells (2007) in which the artist transformed Bondi Beach with a new maze-like fenced environment. Thomas Demand’s project The Dailies (2012) occupied a circular hotel floor with an installation at the intersection of fiction and everyday life. Other international artists who demonstrate the creative vibrancy of Berlin include Tino Sehgal, Asad Raza, Anri Sala, Xavier Le Roy, Simon Fujiwara and Tatzu Nishi. These are some of the many projects and stories that will be explored in the five-month anniversary exhibition and program.

Making Art Public will run until the 16th of February 2020 at the Art Gallery of New South Wales in Sydney. The exhibition and events are free, however some events may require registration.
