Kaldor Public Art Projects
This opportunity is for a suitably qualified applicant interested in undertaking research on the Kaldor Public Arts Project Archive. The thesis should place the Kaldor Projects within a contemporary and art historical context, and investigate the impact of the Projects on the Australian public and international audiences.
The Kaldor Public Art Projects Archive contains complete documentation of all the Kaldor Public Art Projects Projects, from Christo's Wrapped Coast (1969) to the present day, including copies of artist correspondence, preliminary sketches, installation itineraries, curatorial notes, original negatives and photographs, digital, photographic and AV archive, and a complete press archive.
Recent Kaldor Public Art Projects have featured the work of Thomas Demand, Michael Landy, John Baldessari, Santiago Sierra, Bill Viola and Stephen Vitiello, and a project by Puerto Rican artists, Allora and Calzadilla, is currently in production for the State Library of Victoria, Melbourne.
One full-time postgraduate scholarship is available for a suitably qualified applicant, of $20,000 per annum, and may be held for a maximum duration of three years, subject to satisfactory progress.
Applicants must have lodged an application for the SCA Doctor of Philosophy by thesis only by the closing date, and must be Australian citizens, Australian permanent residents or New Zealand citizens.
