Kudos Gallery

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

Since 1998, Kudos Gallery has been host to some of Sydney's most exciting artists, curators and writers and continues to be a fertile ground for provocative concepts, innovative technologies and cutting edge art forms and styles. 

Come and check out what the next ground-breaking generation are up to! Exhibitions open 5-7pm Tuesday nights every fortnight. 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. 

Through providing opportunities for students to volunteer, intern or join the committee, the Kudos Gallery also offers a supportive environment for UNSW Art & Design students to showcase their ideas and take risks whilst developing an exhibition profile at university.

Kudos Committee

Kudos Gallery has opened applications for Kudos Committee members!


Midnight Sunday 1 December 2019

The Kudos Committee is a small group of UNSW Art & Design undergraduate and postgraduate student representatives who have regular meetings, help run special projects at Kudos Gallery, and act as advisors for the Gallery.

The Kudos Committee meets to determine the Kudos Gallery exhibition program by operating on an equal voting structure for decision making regarding applications and more. The Committee maintains all work to be shared equally in return for an equal, open and honest voice in directing the organisations aims and activities.

This is a voluntary role, and students on the committee, the involvement is varied and irregular throughout the year, but is flexible to Student's availabilities. Students could expect an average of 5 hours per month, with more time involvement being around certain events in the program for example in the lead up to the Kudos Awards in August, and with the ability to have more involvement if desired. This time could be spent attending a meeting, helping out at an event, participating in working bees, or working on special projects.

Participation on the Kudos Committee also acknowledged by UNSW on your 'Australian Higher Education Graduation Statement (AHEGS)' upon graduating. This is a fantastic opportunity for students interested in the workings of a gallery to become involved in an active community supporting emerging artists and designers. Committee Member terms are for one year.


ps. You can invite your friends to apply too!

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.
