Learning / Resources
Explore 50 years of groundbreaking contemporary art with our resources for teachers and students at all levels of learning.
Comprehensive learning resources
Our free downloadable education kits provide a comprehensive insight into key Kaldor Public Art Projects from our 50-year history, from Christo and Jeanne-Claude’s Wrapped Coast (1969) through to the present.
Each kit comprises an overview of the project, and detailed insights into the artist’s practice and conceptual framework. Focus questions, glossaries and engaging classroom activities are included to stimulate discussion and critical thinking by students, and to lead to a deeper investigation of the issues raised.
Available online as free downloadable PDF files. Full-colour print copies of selected kits are available, free of charge for students and teachers. Contact our education team for more information: firstname.lastname@example.org
