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.

Very unusual, but amazing art! Terrific to see Chinese art instead of Western art. We were particular fans of the photos of burning orchids, stunning.

This is a private gallery that showcases some stunningly original Chinese contemporary art, with exhibitions changing every six months or so. Some of the art is challenging but by and large it is very accessible. The gallery is a wonderful ambassador for the brilliance of the contemporary Chinese art scene and - maybe in a perverse way - for the... More

The Chinese contemporary art collected by Judith Neilson in her White Rabbit gallery is jaw dropping. The added bonus is the not to be missed guided tours. Phil usually does one at 11am, she is absolutely fabulous and worth going just for her. The tea and dumpling bar is a must as are the quirky and fun objects and books... More

I adore this gallery, even though it's small it has a lot of incredible political Chinese works. The current exhibition is called Heavy Artillery which was taken from proprietor Judith Neilson’s massive collection of contemporary Chinese art. Most of the works are bold and large in scale with my favourite being Guo Jian's Picturesque Scenery 26. I'm glad a friend... More

This gallery is hidden down the side streets of Chippendale. It is a private gallery that is free and always has the most amazing exhibition of contemporary Chinese Art. Changes every 6 months. Also a great little tea house within the building that also has yummy dumplings. Really a must do and easy walking from Central Rail. Lots of great... More

This gallery is on 4 levels but it's TINY so takes no time to go through. The works are interesting, challenging, amazing, stunning. If you aren't that fussed about modern art then you'll be through it and in the tearooms downstairs in half an hour. Well worth a visit. It's free so no reason not to!

I had an amazing morning wandering through this 3 story gallery. The art was fantastic with very poignant messages - political and philosophical - portrayed in terms of beautifully crafted art of every kind.
