1 Sydney’s White Rab­bit boasts one of the most im­pres­sive col­lec­tions of con­tem­po­rary Chi­nese art in Australia – if not the world (out­side of China). The gallery kicks off its new season with Vile Bod­ies – a show that prom­ises a fresh batch of tal­ented Chi­nese artists, work­ing across paint­ing, sculp­ture, video art and more. Vile Bod­ies opens on Septem­ber 9; whit­er­ab­bit­col­lec­tion.org

2 Up there with the coun­try’s great­est liv­ing artists, John Olsen’s lat­est ex­hi­bi­tion fo­cuses on his home­com­ing in 1960 (fol­low­ing a three-year stint in Europe) with paint­ings, prints and wa­ter­colours that cap­ture the vivid vi­brancy of the Aus­tralian land­scape. John Olsen: The You Beaut Coun­try opens on Septem­ber 16; ngv.vic.gov.au

3 Perth street artist Stormie Mills is head­ing to Sydney’s Friends of Leon gallery for a new solo show. In ad­di­tion to trav­el­ling from his na­tive WA, Mills has also ven­tured into outer space for the ex­hibit – get­ting hold of ‘star­dust’, pro­cured from a 4.5-bil­lion-year-old me­te­orite, which he’s mixed with paint used in sev­eral of the works on dis­play. To The Moon And Back runs from Oc­to­ber 13-29; friend­sofleon.com
