A privately owned gallery, free to all visitors, with exhibits which are educational about modern China. A fascinating and uplifting experience. The 3D cityscape is innovative and enthralling. The guided tour is a must . . . the guide breathes life into all the exhibits, providing background and interpretation to a very high standard. The gallery shop has unusual and... More

Small, private and free gallery with stunning art! The little tea house is very nice and the dumplings are lovely! Would definitely recommend and not to be missed if you appreciate contemporary Chinese art!

I was visiting a friend who suggested we visit this gallery. I hadn't realised it exists so was surprised to find this great gallery so close to Central Station, in Chippendale. The exhibition we saw was great. This gallery features contemporary Chinese art. This is a nice art space and had a gallery shop and a Tea House which was... More

The gallery provided a thought-provoking, sometimes confrontational creative experience. The art and art installations by often unknown and cutting edge Chinese artists fascinated and challenged us. This is not your average art gallery! It was a great finish to be able to have lunch in the White Rabbit cafe comprising platters of dumplings and the most interesting range of hot... More

Touted as the best collections of contemporary Chinese Art the exhibition changes twice a year. A private philanthropic gallery that is free, shows thought-provoking art and has a wonderful cafe what... More

Cool gallery with 3 floors of art and floor level shop and Chinese restaurant. Small- and large-scale works were provocative and engaging. Missed the free gallery tour but will definitely do it next time. Easy walk from the Redfern train station. Would go back!

I've loved White Rabbit since it opened many years ago. I have seen the best contemporary art here. I can say this having just returned from a trip to London, Paris and Amsterdam. The best contemporary art in the world is coming our of China and the Nelson's are doing a remarkable job of collecting and showing it. I suspect... More

A new exhibition has just opened (Vile Bodies) and like most exhibitions here, it is very confronting - can't imagine such an exhibition in any other Sydney Gallery - definitely worth visiting for a different experience.
