Three Foot Square is an alternative exhibition space taking the form of a window gallery – illuminated at night and accessible to the public 24/7. The gallery is an intimate and accessible space that gives students the opportunity to exhibit work and connect with the public at all hours of the day. The ‘hole-in-the-wall’ gallery concept was built in 2002, with the aim of providing students and staff the experience of showcasing art without stepping inside traditional spaces.

When: Three Foot Square is accessible 24/7

Where: Gate 1, Napier Street, UNSW Art & Design
