Kaldor
Public Art Projects

Walsh Bay's reputation as the Premier Arts Precinct of Sydney has been enhanced as 31,000 visit the Precinct for the latest exhibition from Kaldor Public Arts Projects.

Marina Abramović: hand selected 12 residents from an initial long list of 65 performance practitioners, researched and compiled by co-curators Sophie O’Brien and Emma Pike. The 12 artists came from diverse fields of creative practice spanning the performing and visual arts, experimental theatre, dance, choreography and digital media. Each participant challenges performance traditions and experiments with long-durational performance, intensive physical practice, improvisation or public participation. 
The Residency Artists lived on site, upstairs at Pier 2/3, where they participated in workshops with Abramović.
