The 6th Asia Pacific Triennial of Contemporary Art

The 6th Asia Pacific Triennial of Contemporary Art

The Queensland Art Gallery’s flagship international contemporary art event — the Asia Pacific Triennial of Contemporary Art (APT) — is the only major series of exhibitions in the world to focus exclusively on the contemporary art of Asia and the Pacific, including Australia.

This publication accompanies APT6, the sixth in the series, and profiles the work of more than 100 artists from 25 countries, including collaborations and collectives, reflecting the diversity of practice across the region. Painting, sculpture, installation, film, video, drawing and printmaking by some of the Asia Pacific region’s most innovative practitioners are featured and lead essays by the Gallery’s APT curatorial team explore the traditions and histories informing the complex artistic practice of the region and its place in an international context.
