MoMA performance of Allora & Calzadilla's work
Kaldor Public Art Projects will present a performative work by internationally renowned artist duo Jennifer Allora and Guillermo Calzadilla as their 26th public art project. 

Project 26 will be presented at the State Library of Victoria from 16 November until 6 December 2012, offering Melbourne residents and visitors the chance to view this major work that was described by the New York Times as 'a 'fully-fledged, crowd-pleasing masterpiece'. 

The artist duo will present their acclaimed work Stop, Repair, Prepare: Variations on 'Ode to Joy' for a Prepared Piano, a performance in which they integrate sound, performance and sculpture. This work was previously presented at MoMA in 2011. The artists are currently exhibiting work at Documenta 2012 and represented the USA at the recent Venice Biennale in 2011.
