HIDDEN Rookwood Sculptures is Rookwood General Cemetery’s annual public arts program

HIDDEN was established in 2009 to encourage the public to visit and explore Rookwood – the oldest, largest and most multicultural cemetery in Australia. Each year the exhibition attracts over 4,000 visitors and significant media coverage. It is a unique opportunity for artists and the community to engage in the cemetery’s contemporary relevance, cultural practices and evocative sense of place. 

HIDDEN is an outdoor sculptural exhibition that steps outside the notion of mainstream galleries and typical outdoor sculpture exhibitions.
