John Kaldor, founder of Sydney-based nonprofit organization Kaldor Public Art Projects (KPAP), announced on September 11 that young Indigenous Australian artist Jonathan Jones had won the open competition to create a site-specific work celebrating KPAP’s 45th anniversary this year, a project slated to take place in 2016.

Jones was chosen from a field of 160 Australian artists, each of whom was required to have at least three years of exhibition experience in order to submit their proposals for the site-specific project, entitled “Your Very Good Idea.” He is the first Indigenous artist to be selected for a Kaldor Public Art Project and will join a list of international contemporary artists who, since 1969, have been bringing world class public art to Australia courtesy of KPAP.
