Louise Zhang
Rickshaw Tales

To celebrate Chinese New Year, 4a Centre for Contemporary Asian Art have commissioned Louise Zhang to create a customised bicycle rickshaw which will take Sydney-siders on a tour of Chinatown.

Made possible with the support of the City of Sydney and presented as part of the 2017 Sydney Chinese New Year Festival, Rickshaw Tales is a food tour like no other. The special artist-designed bicycle rickshaw, commissioned by Chinese-Australian artist Louise Zhang, will turn heads on the Chinatown streets. Zhang’s lolly-esque globular painting style is evocative of the Asian sweets riders will get to sample as they learn about the stories behind the food at some of Haymarket’s most-loved snack stops.

For information on how to book tickets to participate in Rickshaw Tales visit the 4a website.
