3 days to fulltime (negotiable)

For over 40 years, Kaldor Public Art Projects has created groundbreaking projects with international artists in public spaces, changing the landscape of contemporary art in Australia with projects that resonate around the world. Project 1, Christo and Jeanne Claudeʼs Wrapped Coast, was an unprecedented initiative and the projects since have continued in this pioneering tradition, from Gilbert & George, Nam June Paik, Richard Long and Sol LeWitt in the 1970s, to Jeff Koonsʼs giant flower Puppy in the ʼ90s, and more recent projects with celebrated contemporary artists such as Ugo Rondinone, Urs Fischer, Bill Viola, Gregor Schneider, Martin Boyce, Tatzu Nishi, Stephen Vitiello, Santiago Sierra and John Baldessari.

Temporary in nature, the projects have appeared in different sites and cities across the country, and their vibrant engagement with the public has given Kaldor Public Art Projects a permanent place in Australiaʼs cultural history. Since 2004 Kaldor Public Art Projects has been listed on the register of charitable organisations, recognising our not-for-profit status. We also contribute to the development of Australiaʼs cultural life through programs for primary, secondary and tertiary education, as well as programs for the public.
