The Long Story
12 Aug 2017 – 23 Sep 2018
GOMA | Gallery 3.3 & 3.4 Marica Sourris & James C. Sourris AM Galleries | Free
The Long Story explores themes and practices that have shaped the Gallery's Asian and Pacific Art Collection, and includes new acquisitions, seminal holdings, historical artefacts, and works acquired throughout the history of 'The Asia Pacific Triennial of Contemporary Art' (APT). Displayed over two consecutive chapters, the exhibition specifically addresses ideas of historical narrative, the experience of conflict, relationships to land, and how the public image is constructed and public space is contested.
The majority of works in this exhibition were acquired during the Gallery’s flagship series, the Asia Pacific Triennial of Contemporary Art (APT). Stay tuned for details on APT9, opening late 2018.
