Kaldor Public Art Projects in partnership with the Museum of Applied Arts and Sciences invites primary and secondary students to experience the world premiere of The Last Resort, by celebrated French/Albanian artist Anri Sala.
From 16 October – 3 November, Kaldor Public Art Projects educators will guide students on a 2-hour journey through this remarkable site-specific installation, exploring the creative possibilities of sound. Students will participate in a hands-on workshop, responding to the work through making and appreciating, unpacking the conceptual framework and investigating the relationship between art, music and technology. This program is designed to offer an engaging interdisciplinary approach to the artistic process, facilitating in-depth investigations into key curriculum concepts and cross-curriculum links, and is offered free of charge to primary and secondary schools.
ABOUT THE ARTIST
Anri Sala has achieved great international acclaim for his remarkable works, which explore the complex relationship between sound, space and architecture. Sala has received multiple international awards and represented France at the prestigious Venice Biennale in 2013. Featured inside the Observatory Hill Rotunda, The Last Resort will transform the iconic site, which marks Sydney’s highest natural viewpoint and offers a unique opportunity to observe the city and the harbour and reflect upon its layered history.
The Project 33 Education Kit will be provided as an additional print and digital resource to guide and enhance your visit.
