‘Sculpture Rocks’ was an exhibition of Japanese sculpture presented by Sculpture by the Sea at Campbells Cove, The Rocks from 20 May – 3 June, 2021.

The exhibition featured 17 works by 13 Japanese artists including an ephemeral work by Akira Kamada, as well as works by Keizo Ushio, Takeshi Tanabe, and Ayako Saito. The artists hailed from both Japan and Australia, including a number who were compelled to move to Australia due to the vibrant sculpture scene nurtured by Sculpture by the Sea, Bondi.

‘Sculpture Rocks’, a free outdoor exhibition of Japanese sculpture in The Rocks, was staged from 20 May – 3 June, 2021, and was presented by Sculpture by the Sea in partnership with Place Management NSW (PMNSW) and the Port Authority of NSW.
