Darren Knight Gallery was established in Melbourne, Australia in September 1992 and relocated to Sydney in February 1997. The gallery has a long-term approach to the representation of its artists with the aim of establishing serious, ongoing private collector and museum awareness for its artists both within Australia and beyond.
The gallery in Sydney consists of two exhibition spaces in which it presents an ongoing program of solo and group exhibitions by gallery artists. In addition to exhibitions by gallery artists, exhibitions are periodically presented in association with galleries beyond Australia. Examples include Etsuko Fukaya (Yamamoto Gendai, Tokyo 2008 and 2012), Jonas Mekas (Jonas Mekas studio, 2006), Robert Kinmont (Alexander & Bonin, New York, 2010, group exhibition), Marc Hundley (Rainoff, 2011), Chris Mason (Arts Project Australia 2014) and Alan Constable (Arts Project Australia 2015).
Darren Knight Gallery is a regular participant at local art fairs and has exhibited at international fairs including, ARCO Madrid 2002, The Armory Show, New York 2006, NEXT Chicago 2008, Auckland Art Fair 2009 & 2011 and Art Basel Hong Kong 2015 & 2016. For the third iteration of SPRING1883, Darren Knight Gallery will be presenting a group exhibition of gallery artists including works by Jon Campbell, Matlok Griffiths, Jess Johnson, Saskia Leek, Rob McHaffie, Noel McKenna, Michelle Nikou, Ricky Swallow and John Ward Knox.
