Project 10 : Jeff Koons


Project Overview
For Project 10, one of the world’s most famous contemporary artists, Jeff Koons, created Puppy outside Sydney’s Museum of Contemporary Art in 1995. Created as a symbol of love and happiness, Puppy stood 12.4 metres high on the harbourside, carpeted in flowering blooms like a monolithic topiary. Presented as part of the 1996 Sydney Festival and coinciding with Kaldor Public Art Projects 25th year of operation, Puppy became one of the most memorable projects and was viewed by more than 1.8 million people in Sydney before relocating to its permanent home outside the Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao.
