Hidden at Rookwood Cemetery
This unconventional sculpture walk – returning for its 11th-anniversary exhibition – invites you to explore the gardens and graves in the oldest section of Rookwood Cemetery. Located in Lidcombe, in Sydney’s west, it is the oldest, largest and most multicultural cemetery in Australia; there are more than 130 culturally specific and non-denominational lawns. It's on from September 7 to October 6.
Strategically placed among historic monuments and impressive architecture, you’ll encounter site-specific sculptural works created by more than 40 artists. There are also two new categories this year for student and film artworks.
Curated by well-known artist, researcher and writer, Dr Kath Fries, the exhibition has been designed to provoke discussion, reflection and different perspectives about the passage of time, cycles of life, rituals, love, loss and our interconnection with memories.
The program also includes tours with Dr Fries and other artists, bicycle tours (where you can stop and sketch the sculptures), photography workshops, Buddha-making classes and more.
Entry is free, but it’s advised you register here.
