A fabulous building, really knowledgeable guides, and totally fascinating exhibitions (two per year). Nice teahouse and little shop on site.

One of the biggest collections of contemporary Chinese art outside of China, a privately owned museum with an extraordinary collection. Excellent little cafe downstairs, check opening times on-line as they sometimes close for installation.

An extraordinary exhibition of contemporary art from China, in particular a video installation -- quite challenging! And the dumplings are as good as ever! Lovely gallery for a leisurely couple of hours which still makes you think.

This is not your ordinary art gallery. It is always stimulating and often challenging. It is privately funded, showing young emerging artists from China. Be prepared to think about what is presented to you. Never ever boring.

A wonderful gallery in a cool neighborhood in Sydney. The relatively small display is well worth the visit. The “computer game” was an impressive piece of work

Even if you are not into 'art' this intimate gallery provides enough thought-provoking material to keep you mulling it over for a few days. Currently a focus on imagined worlds - imagine that?? Lovely place to pause for a while. Carefully selected items available for...More

The current exhibition is either paper art or photography. The exploration of traditional art motifs and historical perspectives in recently created pieces was fascinating. Not to be missed is the library of books. When we visited the collection of photography books on Tibet and Shanghai...More
