Collecting and Exhibiting Chinese Art in Melbourne:
An historical perspective, and challenges for the future
The paper will give an overview of how both public art museums and private collectors have acquired Chinese art,and built up specialist collections. It will concentrate on the National Gallery of Victoria, which arguably has the best collection in Australia, and will examine both the acquisition of historical material, and the challenge of how to address the complex issue ofbuilding a coherent and credible collection of contemporary Chinese artistic practice.
