Creativity lives, which is a truth front and centre at HIDDEN, the annual sculpture exhibit taking over the sprawling grounds of Rookwood Cemetery. This year, you're in for an artistic display of 53 works spanning performance pieces, video installations and, of course, sculptures.

Artists' explorations of history, creative forms, their own personal narratives and cultural traditions will form an openair two-kilometre walk among the gardens and graves. This year, there's a strong lineup of tours to choose from. A self-guided audio tour to keep it classic; or maybe a curator tour at dusk to dig a little deeper into the works as the sun sets. There are d/Deaf-led tours, artist talks and photography meet-ups, too.

The free-to-visit exhibition is on from Saturday, September 10 till Sunday, October 9. It's recommended you start your wander at the Rookwood General Cemetery Office — on Hawthorne Avenue — so you can grab your map before trekking out.
