The Chinese European Art Center (CEAC) in Xiamen was founded in 1999 by Mrs. Ineke Gudmundsson together with Professor Qin Jian from Xiamen Univeristy Art College. CEAC is a non-profit art center with an artist–in residence program open to visual artists, architects, (fashion) designers, curators, composers and writers. The art center's exhibition calendar consists of ten to twelve shows annually, with supplementary programs including lectures and workshops, outdoor video and film festivals, and concerts.

For more than thirteen years, the Chinese European Art Center has hosted and premiered international artists from all over the world. With studios, exhibitions, contemporary film festivals, concerts, lectures, workshops and an artists-in-residence program, the CEAC plays a central role in southeast China's cultural landscape. The CEAC is widely known for its pioneering role in China as a non-commercial art space and the excellent guidance it provides for artists conducting research and producing their art at work sites and factories in China.
