1969 Christo and Jeanne-Claude came to Sydney and wrapped the coastline; 1973 Gilbert & George climbed on a table at the Art Gallery of New South Wales and sang Underneath the arches; 1995 Jeff Koons' 12 metre Puppy outside the Museum of Contemporary Art captured the imagination of Sydney; last year video artist Bill Viola exhibited works from The Tristan Project in St Saviour's Church and the Gallery. This October, to celebrate 20 groundbreaking projects brought to Australia by John Kaldor, the Gallery has organised an exhibition entitled 40 Years of Kaldor Public Art Projects, published a substantial book and launches the latest project.
