White Rabbit Gallery, Chippendale Sydney, Australia

The White Rabbit Gallery is a privately owned gallery in Chippendale. It was opened in 2009 by Judith Neilson, who has built one of the world’s most significant collections of Chinese contemporary art through her regular aquisition trips to China and Taiwan.

The gallery is housed inside what was once a Rolls-Royce service depot in the 1940s. After a complete refit to suit its new purpose as an exhibition space, the gallery has four floors of exhibition space as well as a theatrette, a library and a teahouse. As only a fraction of the collection is able to be displayed at any one time, the entire contents of the gallery are rehung twice a year.

The White Rabbit Collection documents social and artistic change in twenty-first century China. The majority of art works in the collection are by young, emerging artists.

Children are welcome to visit the gallery, however those under the age of 10 are required to hold an adults hand at all times while exploring the art works. While there are no family-specific materials or trails, we found the collection to be highly engaging for our family, with plenty of art works leading to discussions.

There is stair and elevator access to all four levels of the gallery, and a bathroom with changing table available.
