This gallery showcases work we would never otherwise see, across all media. We learn as much about life in China as we do about the artists. The gallery is a gift to Sydney by its owner, a generous philanthropist with a wonderful curatorial sensibility. For locals it he beautiful teas in the tea room are reason enough to meet here....

“Contemporary Chinese art” is different, and certainly ECLECTIC, to use what is now a clichéd but still apt word. The art is experimental, mad, mysterious, nonsense, who knows what? But stimulating the while, and offers something for everyone. Also, because space is limited, the art changes regularly. A highlight without doubt is the staff on hand, not just in case... More

Located in South Sydney in an old converted warehouse,this quirky exhibition focuses on Chinese ancestry. Great if you speak Chinese but impossible to get your head around otherwise.

The White Rabbit Gallery displays contemporary Chinese art. It's free of charge and even if it wasn't it would be worth a price of $10 - $12 dollars. 4 floors of art, a gift shop and a cafe. It's located within walking distance from Centralor Redfern station in the lovely Chippendale area of Sydney. When we visited there was 2... More

Don't just go to see the visiting collection, in a grand old warehouse; make this a half day excursion for the family. Check out the kids special activities to engage with the trained staff. Start at the top, and wind your way down until you are seated in the cafe for Oriental treats and tea on the ground floor. We... More

Your heart beats slower, your breathing is calm, your mood is relaxed. This gallery is heaven. The Chinese artwork is fascinating. Just walk through all four floors slowly. Ask questions of the attendants, they are wonderful. I suggest you do the guided tour .. when we visited the 2.00pm tour was just starting. It opened up so much that we... More

The exhibits change several times a year but are always centered around contempory chinese art. Ive seen some great instalations here over the years. Finish it... More

This was a most moving and emotional experience, thanks to our wonderful tour guide, Phyl, who knew the details of each person who was represented in a painting, what their story was, and how the painting came to be. We just don't appreciate how very fortunate we are to be living in our wonderful country if Australia. It is good... More
