HIDDEN Rookwood Sculptures

HIDDEN was established in 2009 to enable the local community to explore Rookwood Cemetery. Rookwood is the oldest, largest and most multicultural cemetery in Australia, and HIDDEN invites the public to experience the historic and cultural significance of this iconic site. 

HIDDEN Rookwood Sculptures is an outdoor sculptural exhibition that steps outside the notion of mainstream galleries and typical outdoor sculpture exhibitions to showcase Rookwood as Australia’s most multicultural site.

Each year, the exhibition invites artists to respond to the themes surrounding the Rookwood site. Now in it's 11th year, there are now two new programs to HIDDEN. HIDDEN Rookwood FIlms and HIDDEN Rookwood Students. 

HIDDEN Rookwood Films

An exhibition of video and moving image art that will be exhibited as part of HIDDEN Rookwood Sculptures. This is a continuing component of HIDDEN (formerly known as Flickering Stone in 2018). We invite established and emerging artists, artists from culturally diverse backgrounds, artists with an interest in heritage to apply and artists from Interstate or International locations, worldwide.

HIDDEN Rookwood Students 

We invite students from secondary and tertiary institutions or youth groups, either as individuals or as a group, to apply for this new program. The artworks will be selected and showcased alongside sculptures and installations within the HIDDEN Rookwood Sculptures exhibition.
