In 2014, New York-based artist Lois Conner gifted one of pioneering Chinese artist Zhang Peili’s last paintings to The Australian National University’s newly opened Australian Centre on China in the World. Never exhibited and thought lost, the reemergence of Flying Machine (1994) prompts an exploration of the relation between painting and video in the oeuvre of Zhang Peili.

The epic of King Gesar of Ling is the national oral epic of Tibet, sung by itinerant bards in their land for many centuries but not recorded in print until recent times. Spreading widely beyond Tibet, there are extant versions in other languages of Central Asia. The first printed version is from Mongolia, produced on the orders of the Kangxi emperor of the Manchu Qing dynasty in the early 18th century. In the process of transmission, the original saga lost much of its Tibetan flavour, and this Qing edition can be regarded as a genuine Mongolian work.
The Pacific War and its aftermath radically transformed Australian perceptions of whatwas then called the ‘Near North’. Many recognised that in the postwar world Australia’s strategic interests and economic fortunes called for a new understanding of Asia and the Pacific. China loomed large in these calculations.

The first Australia-China Investment Relationship Conference was conceived around the investment laws and regulatory regimes in Australia and China, the financial systems in both countries, and the governance and regulation of corporate and government entities in both countries. Focusing upon these critical aspects of the relationship begins as an exercise in comparative law but given the currency and urgency of the issues compels researchers to find solutions to the sticking points in law, governance and policy.
