You are are invited to attend a presentation by John Kaldor previewing the upcoming groundbreaking Kaldor Public Art Project #27: 13 Rooms on Wednesday 27 March, 12 to 1pm.

This exciting event will run for 11 days, from Thursday 11 to Sunday 21 April, and has been curated by renowned museum directors and curators Hans Ulrich Obrist, Co-director of London’s Serpentine Gallery, and Klaus Biesenbach, Director of MoMA PS1 in New York. It brings together 13 famous artists and more than 100 performers to present an innovative group exhibition of ‘living sculpture’ within 13 purpose-built rooms at Pier 2/3, Walsh Bay. 

Originally commissioned as ‘11 Rooms’ by Manchester International Festival, the International Arts Festival RUHRTRIENNALE 2012-2014 and Manchester Art Gallery, this landmark exhibition includes new and re-imagined works, specially commissioned for this project, by some of the most celebrated artists spanning six continents. 13 Rooms in Sydney will include iconic senior artists Marina Abramović, John Baldessari and Joan Jonas along with major figures in contemporary international art today: Damien Hirst; Tino Sehgal; artist duo Allora and Calzadilla; Simon Fujiwara; Xavier Le Roy; Laura Lima; Roman Ondák; Santiago Sierra; and Xu Zhen. In addition to the 12 international artists selected to participate in the project, Australian artist duo Clark Beaumont will be invited by the curators to present work in a new thirteenth room.

John Kaldor will discuss 13 Rooms within the context of previous Kaldor Public Art Projects engaging performance including Gilbert and George `The Singing Sculpture' (1973), Charlotte Moorman and Nam June Paik (1976), Vanessa Beecroft (1999) and most recently Allora and Calzadilla (2012).
