Hidden A Rookwood Sculpture Walk 2011

7 MARCH – 8 MAY
OPEN SUNRISE TO SUNSET
STARTING AT NORTHERN END HAWTHORNE AVE
ENTRY IS FREE

With the support of ArtsNSW The Anglican and General Trusts have partnered with Auburn City Council, Sydney Olympic Park Authority and The GroundSwell Project to create the third annual Rookwood Sculpture Walk.

Hidden is an on-site sculpture exhibition revealing artists’ responses to Rookwood, the largest cemetery in the Southern Hemisphere. Rookwood is a place rich in heritage, history and culture, its beauty and splendour distinctive. With such a thought provoking subject matter, Hidden invites
audiences to explore the iconic site whilst admiring the 36 evocative works that feature amongst the graves.

This year’s exhibition will also feature a new media work in the All Souls Chapel and an extensive public program that includes a writer’s workshop, cemetery tours, dusk ceremony and a high school education program.

For the first time since the exhibition started, a $5,000 non-acquisitive award has been given to one of the artists whose work is exhibited in the outdoor sculpture exhibition. Congratulations to Michael Neddham for his ‘haunting’ sculpture!

On top of the $5,000 award, Auburn City Council will have offered Benedict Ernst a one-month residency at the Peacock Gallery and Auburn Arts Studio at no cost.

Sponsored by The GroundSwell Project, this years exhibition also features a $500.00 People’s Choice Award. Go to http://rookwoodcemetery.com.au/hidden/hidden-peoples-choice-vote.html to cast your vote!
