Historic Rookwood Cemetery transforms into an art park this spring, with more than 40 sculptures to discover within the picturesque surrounds

Rookwood Cemetery's annual outdoor sculpture event Hidden invites artists to respond to the history of the location and the role it plays as a site of love and remembrance for diverse communities within Sydney.

This year's exhibition – the ninth – coincides with the 150th anniversary of Rookwood Cemetery, and therefore has a special focus on the history of the site. The line-up of more than 40 artists includes previous Sculpture by the Sea finalists Louis Pratt, Jane Gillings and Emma Anna, Hidden’s 2014 People’s Choice winner Allyson Adeney, and 2016 co-winner Adam Galea. Works range from the monumental to the understated.
