The 9th Asia Pacific Triennial of Contemporary Art
The hugely ambitious Asia Pacific Triennial of Contemporary Art series returns to Queensland Art Gallery | Gallery of Modern Art (QAGOMA) this summer, bringing significant art from across the Asia Pacific to Brisbane. This free contemporary art exhibition presents a unique mix of creativity and cross-cultural insight, featuring more than 80 artists and groups from over 30 countries. The 9th Asia Pacific Triennial of Contemporary Art (APT9) challenges conventional definitions of contemporary art by asking us to consider how art reflects life and shifting social structures across the region. Explore a number of never-before-seen installations, paintings, sculptures, photographs and video from emerging and senior artists, together with leading works from Indigenous communities and artists.
Alongside the exhibition will be a thought-provoking cinema program, academic symposium, creative hands-on experiences for kids, tours, programs and special events for all ages, kicking off with opening weekend festivities 24–25 November 2018. Visit APT9 from 24 November 2018 to 28 Aril 2019.
