It’s embarrassing to admit, but this was our first opening night experience at White Rabbit Gallery. We’ve been to White Rabbit before, but had never caught one of their infamous twice a year exhibition launches. It’s a slick operation. There was a massive and well behaved line-up waiting for the doors to open. ID’s were screened, drink tickets were dispensed and security was tight. Hundreds of keen art lovers meticulously squished in until capacity was reached.
Serve to People is a collection of work from contemporary Chinese artists, curated by Edmund Capon. The collection was an edgy and inspiring look at what the curator deemed, the “new cultural revolution” of China’s art scene. The exhibition will be up for the next 6 months, so you have plenty of time to check it out. Which we highly recommend you do.
One of the things I find amazing about White Rabbit Gallery is how hard core their staff are. Lean in a little too close or breathe on an art work and you get super-friendly shouted at by someone in a bright apron. We get it – things are precious. It’s fun to watch.
