A great gallery space with contemporary Chinese art, mostly with a critical political twist. Well displayed. We really enjoyed it. Friendly staff. The bonus is a smart restaurant/tea shop with a good selection of Chinese teas. The food selection is very limited though, which would not have mattered much except they had run out of our preference even though it was not busy.

One of Sydney's best kept secretes,well its not a secrete but it is definitely not on most people's radar when they are visiting Sydney. When I was there we had an organized tour and it was definitely worth it. The volunteer curator definitely knew her stuff, she's met lots of the artists personally and told us even about the installation process and some of the political struggles behind the arts. I almost felt like I was part of the gallery family. The gallery itself is not imposing unlike lots of other contemporary chinese galleries in China. The ambiance gives a feeling that it's quite warm and embracing even though it is mostly white. When you are there you feel like you belong. Don't forget to check out the teahouse there, they make yummy dumplings, though it is not the best, the skin is too thick verses the filling but you can tell it is homemade.

enormously generous owners have given a fantastic gift of chinese contemporary art to the people of sydney, thankyou. Open, aproachable guides willing to have a well informed chat about the show, overall lack of pretension and preciousness was a breath of fresh air. We had a very enjoyable visit, only sorry I haven't been before, will definitely be back.

A lovely experience and a great little oases in the middle of Sydney, with lovely tea and beautiful art. A cup of tea in the great atmosphere in the cafe under all the rustic bird-cages and you can almost hear the nightingale sing while you are drinking Chinese tea and eating dumplings. Lovely visit!

I'd been hearing excellent reports about the privately owned White Rabbit Gallery in inner city Sydney and decided that I was going on the next Sydney trip. It didn't disappoint. Indeed, it was excellent.

Focussing only on Chinese art, this modern art gallery shows a diverse range of art genres and it is creative and innovative and sometimes cynical, humorous or heart wrenching. I was there for the final day of the excellent Double Take exhibition. I understand that the exhibitions change three or four times a year.

The cafe downstairs sells various Chinese teas and simple steamed dumplings which are tasty.

Many thanks to the generous owner who shows this work free of charge. It is a wonderful gallery and a great asset to inner city Sydney.
