This year’s APT exhibition will present major new and recent works by more than 100 artists, including collaborations and collectives, from across Asia, the Pacific and Australia. It will also offer rare insights into new cultural production in the Middle East, Central Asia and the Pacific, providing Australian audiences with access to art and ideas from some of the most dynamic regions in the world. The APT7 exhibition catalogue marks 20 years of the APT project and will emphasise each artist’s distinctive voice. Featuring writing by the exhibition’s curators, and specialists from diverse fields — including Peter Brunt, Martin Fowler and Joan Kee — APT7 reflects on specific aspects of the exhibition and details the extraordinary artistic, social and economic changes that have taken place across Asia and the Pacific in the two decades since the APT’s inception.
Hahan and Friends
Hahan and friends is an exciting publication written and developed especially for children and the first to focus on the work of a single artist. Emerging Indonesian artist Hahan (Uji Handoko Eko Saputro) has collaborated with the Gallery to develop this richly illustrated book, presented in a format that is appealing and accessible to children. Hahan and friends explores the artist’s life and art works and provides stimulating art-making activities for children to complete at home or at school. Throughout Hahan and friends, young readers will collaborate with the artist and share his passion for comic style artwork, making objects and merchandising products.
