Acts of Kindness
23 September – 23 October 2011
Lower Martin Place and 200 sites across the CBD, Sydney, Australia
For Kaldor Public Art Project 24, celebrated UK artist Michael Landy created a major new work 'Acts of Kindness' for Sydney. 'Acts of Kindness' explored the meaning of kindness in today’s fast-paced world, focusing on the simple everyday gestures of compassion and generosity that occur throughout the city streets and often go unnoticed. Stories of kindness were collected from people across Sydney to form the basis for Landy’s ambitious new artwork. Landy created a 13-metre installation in lower Martin Place, mapping the Sydney CBD and indicating where the 200 stories of kindness were placed throughout the city streets.
