The 9th Asia Pacific Triennial of Contemporary Art (APT9)

24 Nov 2018 – 28 Apr 2019
QAGOMA | 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. QAGOMA's flagship contemporary art series draws visitors with its unique mix of visual spectacle and cross-cultural insight.

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. 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.

APT9 Kids will include interactive artworks, hands-on making, and multimedia activities developed in collaboration with exhibiting artists, especially for children and families. APT9 Kids on Tour will provide children and families throughout Queensland with the opportunity to enjoy a selection of adapted projects at their local venue.

APT9 will also include a symposium and extensive public programs, as well as an APT9 Cinema program.
