For Project 2, curator Harald Szeemann was invited by John Kaldor to curate an exhibition of the latest contemporary Australian art. With a career spanning almost 50 years, he invented the modern idea of exhibition making; pioneered the display of conceptual art and performance; created some of the first cross-disciplinary, non-chronological exhibitions; and experimented with non-museum spaces. The exhibition, I want to leave a nice well-done child here, was shown in Sydney and Melbourne and was the first major exhibition of conceptual art in an Australian museum.
