Rock Solid brings together a diverse group of 11 established visual artists. While the relationship of sculpture and installation to the body is often experienced as tacitly submerged or surrounded, this project asks the artists to make works that are at a scale that can be worn on the body. In their broader practices each artist displays an inherent sensitivity towards materials and a conceptual engagement with the art-making process. They investigate interests and ideas as far ranging as the exploration of the history of sites and objects; rare and endangered species and musique concrete, geometry, and spatialised sonics. Rock Solid is a multifarious and playful exploration of material fictions and imagined truths in the relationships between objects, sculpture and the body.  

Opening Night Tuesday March 22nd, 6 - 8pmTo be opened by Kate Rhodes, Creative Director of the 2011 State of Design Festival and Manager of the RMIT Design Hub. RSVP by March 19 to
