The Library Stairwell Gallery is a dedicated student exhibition space within the National Art School Library. The Gallery provides a platform for undergraduate and postgraduate students to develop their exhibition and curatorial skills, collaborate with fellow students across disciplines, and explore creative ideas outside the bounds of their formal studies. The Gallery presents approximately thirteen exhibitions per year, representing each discipline and based on the philosophical and artistic curriculum of National Art School.
