Watt Space Gallery
Contemporary and dynamic, Watt Space operates in the University’s Newcastle City precinct in an award winning re-purposed civic building, Northumberland House. Its heritage facade opens to industrial style galleries within, designed by UON alumnus Andrew Donaldson.
This year Watt Space is celebrating 30 years as an inspirational cultural hub for our students and community. In 2019 the gallery welcomes an extended student internship program to support its exciting and diverse calendar of exhibitions.

Lucy Cliché (Sydney)
Lucy has carved out a niche of her own bodily contagious techno over her last two decades of practice and is one of Australia's foremost electronic artists. She has performed at the Sydney Opera House, soundtracked films at The Gallery Of Modern Art (Brisbane) and NSW Art Gallery (Sydney), as well as being regularly billed on both dance festivals and DIY shows alike.
Troth is a recently-formed Newcastle duo comprising Amelia Besseny and Cooper Bowman. Together they fashion ethereal environs from vocals, electronics, zither, tape loops and sampled percussion and piano. They will be performing in the centre of their film and reel-to-reel installation in Watt Space's Media Room, titled Nothing Still In The Stone Garden.
Romy Church is a student of music at UoN and a tireless live performer, gigging regularly both in Newcastle and elsewhere in Australia. As e4444e, Church crafts ornately-structured electronic pop and has revealed himself as one of Newcastle's eminent emerging musicians.
Darcy Archer is a student of music at UoN who predominantly works as a percussionist. For this performance, she will be creating a set of meditations via vibraphone. Her collaborative work with Ellen Presbury, The Natural World, is featured in the Fused exhibition in Gallery 1.
