Celebrate the opening of three new exhibitions featuring the latest works by esteemed Australian artists Paul Knight, Lillian O’Neil, and Lisa Sammut.

Paul Knight:
L’ombre de ton ombre

Co-commissioned by UNSW Galleries and Monash University Museum of Art | MUMA, 'Paul Knight: L'ombre de ton ombre' presents new and recent photographic, sculptural, and machine learning works that engage the artist’s relationship with his partner as an index of time, invoking the intimate present alongside the deep past and near future.

Lillian O’Neil:
The light that spills across the ground between shadows

Lillian O’Neil makes collages about the human condition, using found imagery from pre‐digital books and magazines to short-circuit visual information, with bodies taking on peculiar hybrid characteristics, surfaces merging with print textures, and the junctures between body, architecture, day, night, earth and sky all disintegrating. This exhibition presents new photographic collages that consider ideas about the self and a multiplicity of selves experienced during matrescence.

Lisa Sammut:
How the earth will approach you

Working across sculpture, video, and installation, Lisa Sammut’s practice oscillates between notions of cosmic perspective, belonging, connection, and time. ‘How the earth will approach you’ brings together recent works that explore the cosmos as a framework for understanding the dynamics, relations, and dimensions of our personal and social worlds.

Located at the entrance to the UNSW Art & Design campus in Paddington, UNSW Galleries is just 5 minutes from Sydney's CBD. The gallery is fully accessible, welcoming guests with wheelchairs and prams. Find us on the ground level of F Block, next to the Arthouse Kitchen café.
