Dedicated to works made in the 21st century, the White Rabbit Collection is owned by Judith Neilson, who was inspired to establish it after her first trips to Beijing in the late 1990s.
She was thrilled by the creative energy and technical quality of the works she saw and wanted to share them with people outside China. She makes regular trips to China and Taiwan to augment the Collection, which now includes more than 2000 works by almost 700 artists. The gallery building, a Rolls-Royce service depot in the 1940s, was completely refitted as an exhibition space by architect William Smart.
The White Rabbit Gallery is a registered charitable institution funded solely by Judith Neilson.
The gallery is temporarily closed.
Lights out on Lumen
Due to the ongoing COVID crisis and lockdowns in Sydney, we have made the very difficult decision to pull the plug on our current exhibition, Lumen. The planned closing date for the exhibition was getting closer and closer with no real sign of the gallery being able to open up, and it seemed like such a shame to open for a few weeks only to close for another two months.
We will be taking the next few months to do a very slow, COVID-safe install for our next exhibition Big in China. As always, the health and safety of our staff is of utmost importance so we will be working with a restricted crew on site. The current situation in NSW makes it very difficult to make concrete plans, but if all goes well we hope to open the Gallery again in early December.
It’s incredibly disappointing that Lumen will go out with a whimper rather than the big bang it deserved, but we’d like to thank the tens of thousands of very patient visitors who queued around the block to see the show. Many apologies for those of you who missed out, but our next exhibition promises to be as equally fascinating. As always, huge thanks to our Gallery Attendants who worked valiantly with record-breaking attendances in these trying COVID-times.
We look forward to seeing you soon with Big in China!
