The White Rabbit Gallery is an art museum in Sydney, Australia, which exhibits selections from the White Rabbit Collection of 21st-century Chinese contemporary art. The Collection, one of the largest of its kind in the world, is owned by Judith Neilson.[1] The gallery was established by Judith and Kerr Neilson to share the Collection with the public.[2] It is located at 30 Balfour Street, Chippendale, near Sydney Central Station and Central Park, Sydney, in a renovated former warehouse and Rolls-Royce service depot.[3] The gallery can accommodate only a small part of the White Rabbit Collection, which contains more than 1000 works by several hundred artists, including artists from Taiwan.[4] The gallery holds two exhibitions a year, for which the entrance level and three upper floors are entirely re-hung. A tea house on the ground floor serves teas from China and Taiwan. The White Rabbit Gallery is a registered charitable institution wholly funded by the philanthropic Neilson Foundation.[5] Admission is free.
