Kudos Gallery

Our off campus gallery and exhibition space for students and emerging artists

It is free to attend an opening and all students are welcome. Kudos Gallery is Arc @ UNSW Art & Design's largest service, it is a professional off campus exhibition space run by UNSW Art & Design students and funded by Arc @ UNSW Limited. The Gallery is run by students for students where anything and everything can (and does) happen.

The Kudos Committee curates the space Three Foot Square at UNSW Art & Design.

The major event produced by the Kudos Committee is the Kudos Emerging Artist and Designer Award. It is the Committee who select and install the work in the finalists exhibition, run the awards ceremony, and it is the Committee who help to secure prizes.

Three Foot Square is an alternative exhibition space, located at Gate 1 beside the main entrance to the UNSW Paddington Campus. It is made up of two small exhibition venues taking the form of a window gallery and is illuminated at night, presenting art to the public 24/7. Three Foot Square is curated by the Committee on a semesters basis.

Facilities & Space

In 2015, Kudos went through a significant upgrade of the gallery.

All walls are now floating and are made of up one layer of plywood with a layer of plasterboard. The gallery contains power at the tops and bottoms of the walls, hidden behind the wall cavity. The gallery also has four moveable walls that are permanently in the space and are used to create extra wall space or to create rooms.
