The Tao of Now

The White Rabbit Collection Is A Personal Anthology

Our second exhibition, THE TAO OF NOW, presents the works of more than 40 artists. Their themes are as up-to-the-minute as karaoke, land theft, the lust for luxury goods, and political power. But their art is also shaped by the oldest parts of Chinese culture: Taoism, Buddhism, martial arts and ancient legends.

“Its aim is to convey the evolution of Chinese contemporary art for at least the first decade of the 21st century: all the works have been produced since 2000.”
– Judith Neilson, Founder and Director, White Rabbit Collection
