White Rabbit Gallery ROCKS!

My first visit to the White Rabbit Gallery in Chippendale was amazing and I can’t believe that I have never been before!  The gallery’s current exhibition, Decade of the Rabbit, is a celebration of the 10th year of the Neilson’s family collection of 21st century Chinese art. Entering the gallery I was instantly drawn to the gorgeous tea house with beautiful bird cages hanging from the ceiling where you can enjoy some of the finest Chinese-grown teas and fresh handmade dumplings.

This exhibition had me completely hooked from the moment I walked in. I was amazed, delighted and constantly surprised by what I discovered on each level of the gallery.

It is impossible to pick a favourite from such a diverse collection. A breathing mini van, shiny figures marching on a circular treadmill, glowing neon chinese letters filling a wall, a pair of dragon robes knitted entirely out of pages of a dictionary, a stainless steel wire jeep, a life size and life like recreation of a Beijing door way made from embroidery, a porcelain scale model of Beijing CBD and that is just to name a few!

My mum, a recently retired art teacher would be appalled at my inability to use all the artistic vocabulary to describe this exhibition to you. All I can say is that it was awesome! The White Rabbit Gallery has something that will appeal and intrigue everyone. A definite must see (you have until 17 July). Have I mentioned this is a FREE exhibition!

TIP: Take the lift to Level 3 first as it is the only way to get up there and then make your way down.

I hope you enjoy the photos but they are only a small taste of what the gallery has to offer. Make sure you put this on your “must visit” list. Enjoy! I can’t wait for the next exhibition!
