This gallery has a fabulous collection of contemporary Chinese art. I've been many times and have never been disappointed, and everyone I've taken has loved their visit too. You don't need to know anything about China, their art or contemporary art, just go along with an open mind and you will see beautiful, magical, surprising or thought-provoking art. On the... More

On our last day in Sydney we went to the WHITE RABBIT Gallery. We where lucky that we just arrived as a guided Tour commenced. But even without that it would have been absolutely amazing! Forget everything you think about a Gallery! If there is anything remotely like it it would be the Museum of Old and New Art in... More

The White Rabbit gallery was a brilliant experience. I love interesting contemporary art myself, so I was in my prime! Definitely try and catch one of the guided tours (though they only get a certain amount of time, so my tour ended before we had gotten through the entire gallery). They are handy to have as you get told about... More

I was there by accident, went to central park for some market and walk around to find this gallery. As it's free, i just walk in :). In May 2015, they have the "Play" exhibition, 35 chinese artist, with their own interpretation of the world - some are a bit "different", but i think it's an art, some are easily... More

It's free, there's 3 levels and you get a taste of modern Chinese art - exhibits change every 6 months. There can be some very good stuff but also a lot of pretentious, simplistic chaff. Conveniently located behind the Central Park development.

Was taken to the WRG by a friend with my 10 year old in tow - art galleries don't always hold kids attention for long but this is a small, fun space on 2 floors with some quirky and quite surreal exhibits that we all really loved. The installation starts on the ground floor with the 'snapping' tin buckets and... More

We really enjoyed visiting this gallery & seeing 'State of Play' exhibition. Chinese contemporary art with a few twists. Lots of fun & surprises in a great space. Friendly knowledgeable and friendly staff. Good atmosphere - I felt a bit sorry for the staff who have to listen to & talk over the banging bucket exhibit all day, but as... More

Always love visiting WRG whenever there is a new exhibition. My love and appreciation for chinese and taiwanese culture is often featured here in so many diverse ways. Always successful at striking an emotional cord with me, the tours are a must to gain a full apreciation and the staff are always so friendly and welcoming.

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
