White Rabbit's "Double Take" Doubles the Magic

BY Sarah Jenkins | 01-Aug-2012
Double Take, White Rabbit Gallery, opening Aug. 31 The White Rabbit Gallery's new exhibition, Double Take, is in part a birthday celebration. As the Sydney art museum turns three, it is taking a look back as well as forward, mixing new pieces with some of the most popular works from earlier shows. Gallery manager Paris Neilson says the double-take theme works on two levels. "Where people have seen an artwork before, they'll see it in a new context this time, and that will add a whole new dimension. And with all the works we've chosen, there's a sense of 'This isn't what it seems to be.' You think, 'Hang on, what did I just see?' And you look again."
