Art Gallery of New South Wales Unveils New Space Built for the Kaldor Collection


The Kaldor collection comprises more than 200 pieces of mostly museum-quality work and shows Kaldor’s highly refined, but ultimately personal, focus on conceptual work. In one gallery is Southern Gravity (2011), a mural made of mud by Richard Long; Clockwork for Oracles (2011), a wall of multicolored glass panels by Ugo Rondinone; two wrapped trees by Christo and Jeanne-Claude from 1969; several sublime Sol Le Witt wall drawings and a recreation of Kaldor’s Sol Le Witt-painted bedroom from 2003.

The new gallery will also allow the AGNSW to bring out of storage many of its rarely seen contemporary pieces such as Ricky Swallow’s Killing Time (2003–04), the life-sized table with sea-food banquet all meticulously crafted from wood that glows like an altar within this art temple.
