White Rabbit Gallery is unique among Sydney galleries in that it focuses on 21st century works and specifically showcases Chinese art. Following a lengthy closure, its next exhibition promises to be a real treat.
Big in China is a collection of works from a dozen different artists that seeks to answer the question of how you can represent and capture the spirit of a nation of over a billion people. See how the nation's rich history, cultural practices and incredible creativity all play parts in creating inspiring artworks that resonate on a personal level with such a large proportion of the world's population.
The artworks here take just about every shape and form. There's a Corinthian column twisting like a snake and following attendees around the room, large-scale colourful pieces, video game installations and towering rock-like sculptures.
The Chippendale gallery is open 10am–5pm Wednesdays–Sundays and entry is free.
