The 6th Asia Pacific Triennial of Contemporary Art

February 1, 2010

As mentioned in previous posts, the sixth exhibition in the Asia Pacific Triennial of Contemporary Art series is showing until 5 April 2010, at the Queensland Art Gallery (QAG) and Gallery of Modern Art (GoMA), Brisbane.

APT6 includes the work of more than 100 artists from 25 countries, reflecting the diversity of practices across Asia, the Pacific and Australia. It has a number of specific focuses and thematic links and also acknowledges the innovation that exists in performance and music in the region.

Some personally inspiring works include: Wit Pimkanchanapong’s “Cloud”, “Liminal Air – descend – 2007” by Shinji Ohmaki, and “Lightning for Neda” by Monir Shahroudy Farmanfarmaian.
To find out more about these and other works, check out the superb exhibition catalogue available from the Gallery Store, Gallery Store Modern or online.

There is an engaging cinema program for APT6 and the Kids’ APT continues its excellent program of interactive artworks and activities created by some of the artists in the exhibition.
Whether you’re in town, or planning a trip to Brisbane before 5 April, this world-class exhibition is definitely worth a visit, or several!
