In Australia we pretty much ignore contemporary Asian Art, to our detriment, displaying our ignorance. It's fantastic to see some real patronage of this art presented free to the public. This is not a business, this is a gift. The art is varied, always contemporary and constantly inspiring. Ignore the view below in a review that a Chinese only gallery... More

A Gallery in Sydney for Chinese art only. Not quite sure how in this day and age a business can operate like this. Treading the line between being a specialist gallery and Racist to all none Chinese artists. I dont know how a gallery would be percieved if it were run under the guise of being for white anglo's only?... More

Once again this new selection of 21st Century Chinese art is stunning, challenging and entertaining. The 'State of Play' exhibition leads you upstairs to some dark places until you wonder what is real and what is put on. Now every visit to Sydney will include a short detour to this gallery, it makes the whole journey worth it.

I love this gallery for a browse and always go to their latest exhibition. Its a beautiful space with interesting art and afterwards you can have delicious dumplings and Chinese tea in the lovely foyer. I love what's happening to Chippendale lately and the White Rabbit is a big part of the whole area's regeneration.

This world class private gallery changes it's three floors of exciting contemporary art from China several times a year as it's collection is huge. It is free and has excellent guided tours. It is in an accessible converted warehouse easily walked from Central train station. The dumpling/tea shop on the ground floor is excellent. Be amazed.

White Rabbit Gallery is a must-see. Take a walk. It's an easy 45 minute walk from c. quay. 30 min from darlington harbor. Well worth it...especially since it's free! Good to see what 21st century chinese artists are turned on. It's not big...maybe an hour or less. Near chinatown...get outa the hotel and try life in the city! You'll get... More
