In 2014, Wang Bing co-founded the New Century Art Foundation with fellow collector Xue Bing. The foundation is dedicated to “the study and promotion of Chinese contemporary art,” with funding for artists, curators, scholars, and institutions in the field. The founders have said they hope NCAF can “function as a platform that would play a leading role in terms of bringing power of various parties together.” Wang Bing’s own collection features pieces by Chinese contemporary artists like Qiu Xiaofei, Wang Yin, and Cao Fei.
