HIDDEN Rookwood Sculptures | Call for proposals

Rookwood General Cemetery invites artists, either as individuals (if 18 or over) or as a group, to propose works for HIDDEN Rookwood Sculptures 2021.

We are looking for sculptural works that respond to the cemetery and engage with HIDDEN’s themes of history, culture, remembrance, diversity, love, mourning, spirituality, cycles of life and the passage of time. Proposals are invited from a wide range of artistic approaches, materials and forms, including kinetic elements, performance and participatory engagements. We are looking for a broad span of works ranging from celebratory, big, bright and colourful through to contemplative, personal, intimate and thought provoking.

In 2021, we have over $40,000 in honorariums and awards available.

Review the Terms & Conditions and reference the Frequently Asked Questions before submitting. 

You are welcome to discuss ideas with the curator, Kath Fries, before submitting their proposals at
