THE 8TH ASIA PACIFIC TRIENNIAL OF CONTEMPORARY ART (APT8)
BRISBANE
UNTIL 10 APR 2016
QAGOMA | FREE

Brisbane-based members and visitors to Brisbane might like to visit the Queensland Art Gallery of Modern Art’s (QAGOMA) flagship exhibition, the Asia Pacific Triennial of Contemporary Art (APT). APT8 offers a diverse and comprehensive exhibition that is focussed on the work of Asia, the Pacific and Australia. This eighth edition emphasises the role of performance in recent art, with live actions, video, kinetic art, figurative painting and sculpture exploring the use of the human form to express cultural, social and political ideas, and the central role of artists in articulating experiences specific to their localities. APT8 includes more than 80 artists and groups, an ongoing program of artist performances and projects; extensive cinema programs; publications; and activities for kids and families.

The Pacific region is very well represented with two focus projects are the result of in-depth research and ongoing exchange with the region. Yumi Danis (We Dance) presents the vitality and complexity of performance in the cultures of some of our nearest neighbours: Papua, Papua New Guinea, Fiji, Solomon Islands, Vanuatu and New Caledonia. Also featured are site-specific installations by artists from UAE/Iran, India, South Korea, Myanmar, India, Australia and New Zealand.
