About ACAE Gallery
Established in 2019, ACAE Gallery is a cultural venture presenting artworks and exhibitions by contemporary Australian and Asian artists. Our bilingual service, delivered in English and Mandarin, offers access to a range of artworks and public programs. ACAE Gallery also presents a select range of Chinese antiquities and collector advice.
ACAE is our acronym as the Australasian Cultural Arts Exchange.The term ‘Australasia’ first appeared in modern usage in 1756, when the French scholar Charles de Brosses borrowed it from the Latin for ‘South of Asia’, including it in his Histoire des navigations aux terres australes. Adopting this designation, the Australasian Cultural Arts Exchange (ACAE Gallery) is dedicated to developing cultural exchanges throughout the Australasian region and its near neighbours. Primarily focused on the visual arts, our program looks to a range of cultural interests and expressions; it is not limited by contemporary art alone. We invite you to join us as we present new and exciting projects from Australia, Asia and the Pacific.
