The 9th Asia Pacific Triennial of Contemporary Art (APT9)
24 Nov 2018 – 28 Apr 2019 | QAG, GOMA | Free
Stretching from Iraq to Hawai’i, ‘The 9th Asia Pacific Triennial of Contemporary Art’ (APT9) will bring new and significant art from across the region to Brisbane.
Highlights will be a substantial number of newly commissioned works, as well as works by emerging, mid-career and senior artists and influential works that continue to shape contemporary art in the region. APT9 is based on extensive research that has built on the wealth of knowledge established over the exhibition’s 25 year history.
The exhibition will feature over 80 artists and groups whose work is notable for making an impact in contemporary art in its local context, including a large representation of Australian artists. Their works will reveal a number of preoccupations, such as the use of innovative approaches to indigenous traditions and modern thought, the re-imagining of histories or poetic narratives and the ability to show our universal yet diverse relations to nature and culture.
