We visited this art gallery in Sydney. Unfortunately it was a case of being on a wrong day as it was pretty busy on this particular day and we did not really enjoy the experience. The art showcased at the White Rabbit Gallery wasn't something...More

Thoroughly impressive art gallery in a funky neighbourhood in Sydney. Diverse pieces with a landscape theme, including a piece from Ai Weiwei. Really made me think about our impacts on the world.

This privately operated gallery feels like a well run enterprise. The art is varied in execution - photography, ink wash, Chinese style landscapes using natural pigments, audio visual, installation and a ceramic piece by Ai Weiwei. All the pieces have a strong narrative behind them....More

Probably should have taken the tour, but as it was we were a bit non-plussed by the artworks... Having said that we are not art buffs so cannot really comment with any authority.

Located in the back streets of Chippendale, a visit to White Rabbit is highly recommended. Changes it's exhibition regularly.
