About the Exhibition:

The Jenny Birt Award was initiated in 1995 by the 'U Committee' and is the longest running and most prestigious award for Painting within the School of Art & Design academic calendar. Candidates are nominated by academic staff and then selected for inclusion in the exhibition and consideration for the Award.


AD Space acknowledges and pays respect to the Gadigal people of the Eora nation, the traditional custodians of the land on which AD Space is built, operates and creates. AD Space is a student run exhibition space at UNSW Art & Design. Managed by Arc @ UNSW limited in partnership with UNSW Art & Design faculty.
