A Striking New Outdoor Art Exhibition Has Popped Up At The Rocks • Sculpture Rocks

Experience fine Japanese art at Sculpture Rocks.

The weekend is finally upon us and there are heaps of exciting events happening around the city. Art enthusiasts will be excited to learn about a new outdoor art exhibition that has popped up at The Rocks. Titled ‘Sculpture Rocks’, the exhibition is presented by the team behind Sculpture by the Sea along with Place Management NSW and the Port Authority of NSW, so you know it’s totally worth braving the chill for.

The exhibition will showcase artworks by 13 tremendously talented Japanese artists including Keizo Ushio, Takeshi Tanabe, Ayako Saito, Koichi Ishino, Tetsuro Yamasaki and Akiho Tata among others. You can also step into the ephemeral world of artist Akira Kamada with his scultpture ‘Rising Moon’ — a hanging sculpture made of eucalyptus, metal wire, jute twine, fishing line, shock cord, recycled copper and fabric. This stellar line-up of artists hail from both Japan and Australia.

Presented along the Sydney Harbour foreshore between the Overseas Passenger Terminal, along Campbells Cove, and ending at Hickson Reserve next to the Park Hyatt Hotel, the exhibition also features a dazzling backdrop in the form of the iconic duo of the Opera House and Harbour Bridge. So Instagram aficionados can look forward to some stunning snaps along the way. An indoor exhibition of small contemporary sculpture, ‘Sculpture Rocks Inside’, is also being held simultaneously at Campbell’s Stores.


The much-loved Sculpture by the Sea is set to make a roaring comeback this October, in the meantime, head on over to The Rocks and explore these artworks in all their glorious beauty. The exhibition runs from May 20-June 3. Find more information here.
