News – 13 Rooms by Kaldor Public Art Projects

Posted on April 10, 2013 in News.

For an innovative look at performance art in the lead up to the MCA’s one-week performance exhibition Workout, we highly recommend a short walk from the MCA to Pier 2/3 to see 13 Rooms, the 27th Kaldor Public Art Project and the most ambitious to date.

This groundbreaking event has been curated by renowned museum directors and curators Hans Ulrich Obrist, Co-director of London’s Serpentine Gallery, and Klaus Biesenbach, Director of MoMA PS1 in New York.

Featuring 13 artists from around the world, including major international figures such as Damien Hirst, Marina Abramović, John Baldessari and Tino Sehgal, 13 Rooms is an innovative group exhibition of ‘living sculpture’ within 13 purpose-built rooms. For 11 days only.

11-21 April 2013. Pier 2/3, Hickson Road, Walsh Bay – in other words here. Free entry.

For a more in-depth look at performance art, don’t miss the ABC’s Artscape: Don’t Try This At Home – Performance Art in Australia featuring MCA Collection artist Diana Smith from Brown Council and referencing several past MCA exhibitions. View here

Workout, a one-week series of performances by Australian artists, runs 22-28 April 2013 at the MCA.
