IAC Annual Address

A special dual event featuring art historian, curator and China scholar Professor Claire Roberts and former ABC foreign correspondent in China Warren Duncan. Professor Roberts will deliver IAC annual address titled "Parallax Vision - Understanding Chinese arts and culture in Australia, 1972-2023" and Warren Duncan who was the second ABC China correspondent, the only English-speaking broadcast journalist in the Chinese capital in the 1970s will exhibition his photographic works which captured incredible and rare historic moments, revealing the interactions between Australians and Chinese, including state leaders, diplomats, high ranking officials and ordinary people, and reflecting how China looked to arriving Australians.

The Australia-China Institute for Arts and Culture at Western Sydney University hosted the 2021 Annual Address in person on our Parramatta South campus on 27 May 2021. We were very privileged and greatly honoured to have Professor Nicholas Jose to deliver the Annual Address entitled Culture Fever: The Importance of the Arts.

In ACIAC's inaugural Annual Address, its Adjunct Professor Carrillo Gantner AC spoke about the history of Australia-China relations and shared his experience in the cultural exchange between Australia and China.
