- Category: Art in the cemetery
The "Artshub" alerts artists that submissions are now open for HIDDEN, an annual outdoor sculpture exhibition held in the gardens and amongst the graves of Australia’s oldest operating cemetery, Rookwood.
With a total area spanning the size of Sydney’s CBD, Rookwood may seem formidable, but visiting needn’t be a daunting experience thanks to HIDDEN Rookwood Sculptures, an exhibition that allows people to engage with art while admiring the cemetery’s beautiful surroundings.
‘HIDDEN was created as a way to encourage people to visit Rookwood Cemetery and see it as something that does not have to be scary; to demystify the thoughts that people have around cemeteries,’ said Corinn Camps, Rookwood’s Marketing and Events Coordinator.
Entering its 11th year, HIDDEN Rookwood Sculptures is now seeking submissions from emerging and established artists across a wide range of artistic approaches, materials and forms. Artists are encouraged to traverse a broad range of themes including history, culture, remembrance, love, cycles of life and the passage of time.
For the first time, two new categories have been implemented which provide opportunities for film artists and students, said HIDDEN’s curator Dr. Kath Fries.
