Project: Research

Description

The project aims to theorise and document the creation of a permanent record of the development of public art in Australia through the digitisation of the Kaldor Public Art Projects (KPAP) archive. Digitising the archive will make it widely available to researchers and to the public as an online resource.

Over five decades KPAP has created innovative, ground-breaking public art projects that, although they have all been temporary works, have left a cultural permanence in the Australian art landscape. Digitising and publicising of the KPAP archives will cement this cultural legacy. The digitised archive will constitute a trove of materials for researchers in art history, contemporary art and social history, and for members of the public.
