ON TOUR | Free

‘Asia Pacific Contemporary’ celebrates the Queensland Art Gallery | Gallery of Modern Art’s (QAGOMA) flagship exhibition, the Asia Pacific Triennial of Contemporary Art (APT), now in its tenth iteration. Featuring works that have appeared in the Triennial since its debut in the 1990s, and across media from painting and sculpture to video, performance and works on paper, ‘Asia Pacific Contemporary’ showcases art from Aotearoa New Zealand, Australia, Cambodia, China, India, Indonesia, Pakistan, Papua New Guinea, Taiwan, Vanuatu and Vietnam.

As these varied and compelling artworks demonstrate, the Asia Pacific Triennial of Contemporary Art continues to be a pre-eminent platform for the art of Asia, Australia and the Pacific, surveying a vast and dynamic region through a series of exhibitions, forums and cultural exchanges. The diverse works in ‘Asia Pacific Contemporary’ reflect the APT’s embrace of contemporary art in all its forms, ranging from the ceremonial to the conceptual, and from the deeply personal to the resolutely social.
