The John Kaldor Family Collection comprises over 200 artworks and is among the most significant donations of 20th and 21st century art to have been made to an Australian art museum. The collection was initiated by John Kaldor AM more than 50 years ago and since the 1990s it has been developed in collaboration with Naomi Milgrom AO. Today, the collection is renowned for its in-depth representation of some of the world’s most influential artists.
The display that opened on 30 May 2015 focuses on seven artists from Australia and around the world who have emerged since the 1990s: collaborative duo Jennifer Allora and Guillermo Calzadilla, Paul Chan, Michael Landy, Ugo Rondinone, Wilhelm Sasnal and Daniel von Sturmer.
Conceived as a series of solo shows, each section has been developed in collaboration with the exhibiting artists to reveal the ongoing dialogue between the John Kaldor Family Collection and the artists who comprise it.
