CALL FOR ARTISTS NOW OPEN

Submissions are now open for HIDDEN – A Rookwood Sculpture Walk 2018. We invite established and emerging artists, artists from culturally diverse backgrounds, and artists with an interest in heritage to apply.
HIDDEN is The Trust’s signature annual event. Now celebrating its 10th anniversary, HIDDEN was established to encourage public use of the historic Rookwood Cemetery and enable the greater community to explore Rookwood Cemetery – the oldest, largest and most multicultural cemetery in Australia.
The exhibition is a platform for community engagement, and while it remains respectful of its purpose and place, it aims to de-mystify some of the misconceptions surrounding cemeteries as dark and intimidating settings.
The Trust is interested in exhibiting sculptures that respond to themes surrounding the Rookwood site, such as history, culture, remembrance and love. This could include grief, loss, mourning, spirituality, the environment, and different cultural beliefs around burial and memorialisation.
Artists may propose works yet to be made or alternatively, existing works that relate to the exhibition themes, so long as the artwork has been produced post September 2016.
Artists are encouraged to speak with the Curator, Cassandra Hard Lawrie to discuss ideas before submission.
To view work from previous HIDDEN exhibitions, visit our gallery.
