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

24 NOV 2018 – 28 APR 2019

The APT series returns to QAGOMA this summer, bringing significant art from across the Asia Pacific to Brisbane. Overflowing with colour and life, this free contemporary art exhibition presents a unique mix of creativity and cross-cultural insight.

Featuring more than 80 artists and groups from over 30 countries, APT9 challenges conventional definitions of contemporary art by asking us to consider its relationship to shifting social structures across the region. Explore a number of never-before-seen installations, paintings, sculptures, photographs and video from emerging and senior artists, together with leading works from Indigenous communities and artists.

Alongside the exhibition will be a thought-provoking cinema program, academic symposium, creative hands-on experiences for kids, tours, programs and special events for all ages, kicking off with opening weekend festivities 24–25 November.

APT9 assaults the senses as soon as your enter the doors of GOMA and also major spaces at QAG. There’s over 400 artworks to explore, but some key highlights we encourage you to visit at GOMA are Jonathan Jones (Australia), Aisha Khalid and Iman Raad (Islamic Republic of Iran) and then popping over to QAG to view the Women’s Wealth project (Bougainville and the Solomon Islands).

For more information on the exhibition visit the website.
