The seventy-six objects on display comprise a selection from the extensive collection of Chinese ceramics belonging to Albert Yuen, a Perth-based Hong Kong native with a longstanding passion and knowledge for this particular aspect of Chinese art.
Perth is known to host several art collections of high quality in private hands. However, they are overwhelmingly limited to the past 150-200 years and geographically and culturally to Australia (Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal), Europe and North America.
It is therefore with pride that AGWA includes in its program this collaboration with one of the very few collectors who look back at their own heritage at the same time being fully and proudly Australian. This is not only the first time that AGWA will display an exhibition of historical Chinese ceramics, but also one that is entirely sourced from Western Australia.
