Crikey received an interesting media release last week. It was from well-heeled public art philanthropist John Kaldor (of Kaldor Public Art Projects), spruiking a grand new public art installation planned for Sydney’s Royal Botanic Gardens. Created by indigenous artist Jonathan Jones, the project is billed as “a vast sculptural installation across 20,000 square metres of the garden incorporating a native kangaroo grassland and thousands of ceramic shields”. The project, entitled Your Very Good Idea, is the winner of a competition held by Kaldor Projects last year.
Buried down the bottom of that press release was a logo for the Australian government’s “Catalyst Australian Arts and Culture Fund”.
