Independent curator Micheal Do presents the online exhibition ‘Jack in the Box: Notes on Kaldor Public Art Projects, Michael Landy and the Archive’ as a catalogue of thoughts, connecting eleven objects selected from the Kaldor Public Art Projects archive to examine the nature of visual art and its connection to wider publics.
Borne from the curator’s study into the agency and materiality of the archives, the text-exhibition/exhibition-text exists as an extended blog post, interspersed with thoughts, questions and provocations that examine British artist Michael Landy’s role in transforming the Kaldor archive into a new artistic work – the exhibition Making Art Public – and the artist's ongoing relationship to John Kaldor and Kaldor Public Art Projects.
Micheal Do’s online exhibition was commissioned as part of Future Curators, a creative learning program which gives secondary students across NSW the opportunity to connect with experienced curators and to activate the Kaldor Public Art Projects archive.
