Lunch & Lecture: 'APT10 Part 4'
‘Art and Community: APT10 Projects from the Philippines, Fiji, Tonga, and Queensland’s Pasifika Community’

11.00AM Wed 23 Feb 2022
GOMA | GOMA Restaurant, Cinema A | Sold Out

Delve deeper into QAGOMA exhibitions and displays at our monthly Members lecture then catch up with friends over a two-course lunch in the GOMA Restaurant.

Join curators from the Asia Pacific department, Ruha Fifita and Abigail Bernal, to discuss recent commissions and projects developed for APT10 by artists from the Philippines and the Pacific, including Tonga and Fiji. Be introduced to the work of artists from the Philippines who paint on copper or commercial rice sacks, create a loom from human hair, or handmake paper from pulped organic matter. Find out how these artists employ such materials to challenge gender specificity, express solidarity and assert the importance of identity and home. Members will learn about the distinctive pottery practice evolving in the Fijian riverside village of Nasilai; explore the resurgence of intricate ancient Tongan coconut-fibre weaving practices; and gain insight into the work of a Tonga-based arts collective making unique contributions to the development of contemporary art and arts education in the region. This session is sold out.
