Three Foot Square is an alternative exhibition space, located at Gate 1 beside the main entrance to the UNSW Paddington Campus. This small exhibition venue takes the form of a window gallery and is illuminated at night, presenting art to the public 24/7.
Three Foot Square is the campus’ most initimate and most accessible exhibition space that continues Sydney’s tradition of “hole-in-the-wall” galleries.
The window gallery was built in 2002 and originally located at the Greens Road entrance. It was started as an initiative of Dr Alan Krell and his first year Bachelor of Art Theory students to provide an opportunity for students and staff to showcase their work to the general public, providing an experience of contemporary art without having to step inside a traditional gallery space.
In 2015, Three Foot Square relocated to its new home at the Napier Street entrance, adjacent to UNSW Galleries, where it continues to foster emerging practices on campus.
