Thank you to everyone who attended Rain Room’s return season. Since opening in August 2019, over 120,000 Melbournians have ‘controlled the weather, making it the most attended solo art exhibition in recent memory.
Rain Room is scheduled to return to the Jackalope Pavilion for an encore downpour on 1 November 2023. To avoid missing out, register for first access to tickets via the link below.
On the corner of Fitzroy and Acland Streets, St Kilda
To celebrate Rain Room’s record-breaking Melbourne season, iconic cake makers, Black Star Pastry, have created a limited-edition Rain Cake, inspired by the work. Exclusive to Black Star Pastryâ€™s St Kilda store â€“ located under Rain Roomâ€™s Jackalope Pavilion â€“ the Rain Cake is the first in a series of art projects in which Black Star Pastry will collaborate with renowned artists and institutions, creating edible adaptions of iconic works. The Rain Cake is quite literally the dessert after the sensory feast that is a walk through this globally significant work. While Rain Room indulges your sense of sight, touch and sound, the Rain Cake closes the sensory circle, spoiling your sense of smell and taste.
Rain Room is an immersive art installation that allows you to walk through a downpour of continuous rain without getting wet. Motion sensors detect the movements of the human body as visitors navigate through the darkened space, becoming performers in this intersection of art, technology and nature. Please allow 30 minutes from your ticketed session time to experience Rain Room. This allows for your introduction to the work, 15 minutes inside Rain Room and time to explore the gift shop after.
The No. 16 Tram runs from the Melbourne’s CBD to St Kilda, with several stops located along Fitzroy Street. The No. 96 also runs from Melbourneâ€™s north to St Kilda. We recommend disembarking at Stop 135 â€“ Acland Street, opposite the Prince Hotel.
