White Rabbit Gallery - I Loved You Exhibition

I Loved You

The time between messages, the length between reunions, the distance between lovers – our intimate lives are filled with spaces. Whether they be passionate or painful, absences punctuate our daily routines with reminders of a beloved when they are no longer there. From heady first meetings to bittersweet goodbyes, throughout it all, love haunts us like a ghost.

About

White Rabbit Gallery

The White Rabbit Gallery was opened in 2009 to showcase what has become one of the world’s most significant collections of Chinese contemporary art.

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 almost 3000 works by almost 750 artists and continues to expand.

The gallery building, a Rolls-Royce service depot in the 1940s, was completely refitted as an exhibition space by architect William Smart. Since the Gallery can house only a fraction of the collection at any one time, there are two new exhibitions a year, each involving a full rehang. For this reason, the Gallery closes during installations, usually in February and August.

The White Rabbit Gallery is a registered charitable institution funded solely by Judith Neilson. Admission is free.

About

Tea House

Visit the Tea Hous

Whether you’re visiting White Rabbit’s collection, meeting a friend or just in need of a break, the gallery’s tranquil street-level Tea House is a delightful place to relax, chat, or simply read the paper as you sip.

As well as snacks, we serve a wide range of the finest Chinese and Taiwanese teas. Take your pick from oolong, partly oxidised leaves that are twisted or rolled into tiny balls; white teas, named for the pale down on their leaves; flower teas like chrysanthemum, which blossom in the pot; and in summer, a cooling lychee iced tea.

If you’re not sure which tea will suit your taste or mood, our cheerful attendants are happy to offer suggestions. Most Chinese teas can be infused several times, and many taste best on the second or third steeping. We’ll keep topping up your pot at no extra charge until you’ve had your blissful fill.

For lunch, try a plate of our divine handmade dumplings (chicken and coriander or egg and chive; gluten-free and vegan alternatives are available) or scrumptious scones, served warm with jam and cream. And if tea is not your cup of tea, we have wine, beer and juices.
