The Australian Centre on China in the World (CIW) Art Collection includes diverse works in a variety of mediums ranging from glass, photography, and prints, to furniture, maps, posters, calligraphy, and sculpture. Displayed throughout the centre, these works provide an exquisite complement to the award-winning architectural design of the CIW building itself.  

In addition to the collection, the centre also houses a built-for-purpose gallery. The CIW Gallery serves the core mission of “understanding China through art” by exhibiting artwork from across the Sinophone world, including but not limited to mainland China, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Singapore, and Malaysia, as well as diasporic communities from Australia and beyond.
