​Three Foot Square

Three Foot Square is the campus’ most intimate and most accessible exhibition space that continues Sydney’s tradition of “hole-in-the-wall” galleries.

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. It is illuminated at night, presenting art to the public 24/7. 


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 opportunities 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.
