The laser room is one of the highlights I think but all the exhibits are quite interesting! Before or after you visit the small restaurant with nice wooden tables and the bird cages on the ceiling, for a quick bite. Two or three young guys are cooking and serving simple dumplings and tea.. Very Chinese!

This is a world class gallery which exhibits the philanthropist/collector Judith Nielsen's extensive collection of contemporary Chinese art. The exhibition changes every few months. It is often poignant and confronting but always stimulating and informative. Entry is free. Tip: take the lift to the 3rd floor and work your way back down to the Ground level. By then you'll feel...

This is a quirky small private museum but what you see here you are unlikely to see anywhere else (In Australia at least). Some of the best avant garde Chinese art. The exhibits change every 6 months and close for a few weeks when they change over so check that it will be open before you head there. Lovely tea... More

This corner of Chippendale has become a thing. Gentrification has brought with it a change to my old hood, not all good, but this one great. A 5 minute walk from Central station, White Rabbit is a gift to Sydney from Judith Neilsen - a converted old textile factory, now the best art gallery dedicated to modern Chinese art you... More

Great privately owned contemporary art space showcasing Chinese contemporary art. Free entry (non-obligatory donation if you're feeling the love). Great dumpling restaurant in the foyer as well to round out the experience.
