Rockpool Residency: Art and Event day

Rockpool Residency OC - 1.jpg

A site-responsive art and event day centred around Nielsen Park, Vaucluse, situated on the lands of the Gadigal and Birrabirragal People.

Rockpool Residency: Unseen Worlds is a collaborative project created through engagement with artists, designers, scientists, ecologists, and Traditional Custodians. It aspires to a more connected and collective sense of place and celebrates the unique ecologies and enduring cultural significance of this nature reserve.

The art and event day features a pop-up exhibition with works by contemporary Sydney artists: Blake Bridgewater, Marianna Ebersoll, Aurelia King, Maya Martin-Westheimer, Lisa Myeong-Joo, Emma Pinsent, and Anna Seymour.

Guests can also join talks by the Sydney Institute of Marine Science (SIMS) Project Restore team, an ornithology tour led by Renee Ferster Levy, and a ‘rockpool ramble’ with Will Jones.  

Some events require registration to ensure manageable groups, information here.

Rockpool Residency: Unseen Worlds was developed with guidance from the Gujaga Foundation. Floorplan Studio pays our respects to Indigenous people. We acknowledge their enduring connections to Nielsen Park, Sydney, and Australia.

This project is presented by Floorplan Studio in partnership with Woollahra Gallery at Redleaf, supported by Woollahra Council Community and Cultural Grants and Create NSW.
