SCHOOL VISITS PROJECT 24
Primary and Secondary school groups are invited to explore the 24th Kaldor Public Art Project, Michael Landy's Acts of Kindness, between 10am to 3pm, Monday to Friday, from 17-21 October 2011.
Acclaimed British artist Michael Landy is recognised as having created some of the most significant and memorable public art projects of the past decade. His work explores and reflects on contemporary values and the experience of life in a consumer world.
Landy is best known for his performance and installation project Break Down (2001), in which he publicly and systematically destroyed all his personal belongings.
Acts of Kindness, his new project, is a collaborative portrait of Sydney, a 13-metre jigsaw puzzle of the city installed at Martin Place and in 200 sites across the CBD. Embedded in the work are 200 stories of kindness collected from the public. Acts of Kindness focuses on the simple everyday gestures of compassion and generosity that occur throughout the city streets, often unnoticed or unremarked.
Bookings essential for half-hour guided tours.
All visits by school groups must be booked at least two days in advance, please email us to request a booking form or phone (02) 9361 5066.
