ACIAC Advisory Board Chair Dr Geoff Raby is known to many as an economist, a diplomat and a consultant working between Australia and China, but he is also a fervent lover of art, especially contemporary Chinese art.
On 11 October, 2018, the Australia-China Institute for Arts and Culture launched his beautifully published catalogue — The Geoff Raby Collection of Contemporary Chinese Art — in Vermilion Art Gallery of Sydney. Vice Chancellor and President of Western Sydney University and ACIAC Board Chair Professor Barney Glover spoke to an enthusiastic crowd and helped present the collection. He commended Dr Raby for his passion, knowledge and devotion to his subject matter and for the depth of cultural understanding and resonance that he brought to contemporary Australia-China relationship. And he also spoke highly of Dr Raby’s collection.
