Down the Rabbit Hole

This week Sally tumbles down the rabbit hole and finds herself in Sydney’s coolest hub of contemporary Chinese art, White Rabbit Gallery in Chippendale.

Launched in 2009 by Sydney Philanthropist, Judith Neilson, the gallery houses her private collection of contemporary Chinese art which is regarded as one of the most significant in the world. Inspired by a couple of trips to Beijing in the late 1990s, Judith was overawed by the creative energy and technical quality of the works she saw and was determined to share them with people from outside China.

The gallery, a former Rolls-Royce repair depot, has four floors of exhibition space but can still only display a fraction of the near three-thousand-piece collection at any one time, meaning there are two new exhibitions a year, each involving a full rehang.

With three guided tours daily, free admission and some amazing Chinese teas and hand-crafted dumplings available at the ground floor Teahouse, it’s easy to see why White Rabbit Gallery is regarded as one of the best art experiences in Sydney.
