About White Rabbit
The White Rabbit Collection is one of the world’s largest and most significant collections of contemporary Chinese art. Founded by Kerr and Judith Neilson, it focuses on works produced after 2000.
The origins of the Collection go back to the late 1990s, when Judith Neilson engaged Wang Zhiyuan, a Chinese artist then living in Sydney, as her art tutor. He introduced her to the astonishing explosion of creativity taking place in China in the wake of the “Opening Up” that had begun in 1989. Mrs Neilson began buying works, but soon ran out of space to hang them. She and her husband then decided to open a gallery that would make the exciting world of contemporary Chinese art available to all Australians.
The White Rabbit Gallery, a converted former knitting factory near Sydney’s Central Station, has four floors of exhibition space as well as a theatrette, a library and a teahouse. Only a fraction of the Collection is on show at any time. The entire contents of the gallery are rehung twice a year.

Alongside its exhibition program, Firstdraft runs a variety of other programs and projects and in 2010 launched a second venue, Firstdraft Depot.
Firstdraft is assisted by the NSW Government through Arts NSW and the Australian Government through the Australia Council for the Arts, its arts funding and advisory body. Firstdraft Depot is supported by City of Sydney. Firstdraft is also supported by Porter’s Paints and Jed Wines.
Aboriginal & Pacific Art represents contemporary Aboriginal art from around Australia. Working with community-owned and -governed art centres, the gallery shows monthly exhibitions of new works, including painting, sculpture and works on paper, from established and emerging artists. Aboriginal & Pacific Art was established by Gabriella Roy in 1996 at the Sydney Dymock’s Building. She has worked with both Aboriginal and Pacific arts and artefacts for the past four decades and brings an acute sense of history and aesthetics to the gallery. At the Dymock’s space, Aboriginal & Pacific Art presented many groundbreaking shows, including solo exhibitions of the late Tiwi artists Kitty Kantilla (Kutuwulumi Purawarrumpatu) and Freda Warlapinni, and the late Fitzroy Crossing artist Janangoo Butcher Cherel. The gallery is also a long-standing representative of Tiwi artist Timothy Cook and South Australian Ngarrindjeri weaver Yvonne Koolmatrie.
Gabriella works together with the art advisors from community art centres to best represent the artists and their works. In 2005, the gallery moved to its current location in Waterloo’s 2 Danks Street, attracting a new and diverse audience. Here, Aboriginal & Pacific Art has presented the yearly Sydney exhibitions of Warakurna Artists, Tjala Arts and Tjungu Palya, all based in South Australia’s Anangu Pitjantjatjara Yankunyjatjara (APY) Lands, and solo exhibitions of Tiwi artists Jean Baptiste Apuatimi and Timothy Cook. Aboriginal & Pacific Art is a member of the Australia Commercial Galleries Association (ACGA) and Gabriella is an accredited government valuer (since 1986). The gallery also represents works in the secondary market. The ‘Pacific’ of its title refers to Gabriella’s extensive knowledge and secondary market representation of Oceanic arts.
