About the Museum

China Institute is devoted to bridging the United States and China by sharing insights and deepening trust through the pillars of education, art & culture and business. It was founded in 1926 by a group of distinguished American and Chinese educators including Hu Shih, one of China’s leading reformers, the Chinese educator Kuo Ping-wen, and the American educational reformer John Dewey.

China Institute is the oldest bicultural organization in America devoted exclusively to China, and the only institution based in New York that is focused solely on deepening cultural understanding between the United States and China. Established in 1966, China Institute Gallery is renowned for its intimate, first-class thematic exhibitions, which are accompanied by in-depth scholarly catalogues. The Gallery has presented over 100 exhibitions in such areas as calligraphy, painting, ceramics, bronzes, decorative art, folk art, architecture, photography, textiles, and contemporary art covering 5,000 years of Chinese history from the Neolithic period to present day. China Institute Gallery has earned an international reputation and continues to provide a unique opportunity for Americans and visitors from around the world to appreciate both traditional and contemporary Chinese art and culture.
