RANDOM INTERNATIONAL’s Rain Room is a monumental, interactive work that merges art, technology, and nature. A visceral and emotive experience, Rain Room creates a theatrical space that invites each patron to respond to and question their relationship with the installation, and on a deeper level, their relationship with nature and the environment.
One of the world’s most famous contemporary works, Rain Room was first brought to Australia in August 2019 as part of Jackalope Hotel’s ambitious art collection. This immersive experience is a 100 square metre expanse of continuous rainfall. Visitors experience a downpour which responds to your presence and movement, an experience of being consumed by an intense rainstorm, while being completely protected from its forces. Whilst most of Jackalope’s impressive private art collection can be found at the hotel on Victoria’s Mornington Peninsula, a specially designed Pavilion was created in St Kilda to house this unmissable work.
Random International’s most ambitious work, Rain Room has previously exhibited at The Barbican, London (2012); the Museum of Modern Art, New York (2013); the YUZ Foundation, Shanghai (2015); the LACMA, Los Angeles (2017); the Sharjah Art Foundation (2017); and at the Museum of Contemporary Art, Busan (2019).
Over 750,000 people have experienced Rain Room globally.
Rain Room is opening its doors again for a third season from 1 November 2023 at the Jackalope Pavilion in St Kilda. Tickets for Melbourne’s most talked about and Instagrammed solo art exhibition are available now.
