Summary
“If there was such a thing as a ‘defining moment’ in the story of contemporary Australian art it must surely have been that visionary and attention-grabbing event, the wrapping of Little Bay’s coastline in 1969.” Edmund Capon Director, Art Gallery of New South Wales In 1969 artists Christo and Jeanne-Claude came to Sydney and wrapped the rocky coastline at Little Bay; two-and-a-half kilometres of coast and cliffs up to 26 metres high. It was the largest single artwork that had ever been made at the time. One of the first major land art projects anywhere in the world, it was made possible by a young Australian collector, John Kaldor. Forty years later the Art Gallery of New South Wales is celebrating four decades of John Kaldor’s public art in an exhibition containing archival material, photographs and unique television footage. The exhibition, 40 years: Kaldor Public Art Projects, will be accompanied by a substantial book documenting all the Kaldor projects
