In February 2016 to coincide with Chinese New Year and to celebrate the 30th Anniversary of the SA and Shandong Sister State Relationship, this exhibition will preview and celebrate the launch of a new residency project for artists and creatives in Qingdao, China.

The Residency aims to embrace and further develop the creative, cultural and commercial links between SA and Shandong Province, by providing selected artists an exciting creative space to engage with Chinese art, history, and culture.

The exhibition has been produced by the Australia China Development Company and Gus Clutterbuck Art & Design, and supported and presented by the Kerry Packer Civic Gallery at The Bob Hawke Prime Ministerial Centre. It will present the work of Australian artists working across the genres of contemporary art, fashion and film, in a dynamic collection of works that indicate the possibilities of this new space.The artists were all invited on the basis of the high quality and innovation of their work as well as their proven commitment to engaging with China through residencies and exchange. The Australia China Development Company has influenced and been involved in the growth and diversification of the Shandong-South Australia relationship.
