About the Gallery
UNSW Galleries stands on an important place of learning and exchange, first occupied by the Bidjigal and Gadigal peoples of the Eora Nation. It is located at the entrance to the UNSW Paddington campus in Sydney’s cultural precinct.
Opened in 2013, it builds on the legacy of Ivan Dougherty Gallery (1977–2009) at UNSW, and presents leading Australian and international practitioners, curators and writers across exhibitions, public programs and publishing.
UNSW Galleries is a space for presenting and interpreting contemporary visual and material culture and a site for gathering, conversation, and learning. The program stresses the importance of learning through exhibition-making, using integrated projects and events across the year to engage audiences in conversation with commentators from various disciplines.
Three gallery spaces totalling 1,000 square meters.
