We’re currently installing Haegue Yang’s Sol LeWitt Upside Down — Open Modular Cubes (Small), expanded 958 times which uses over 1000 Venetian blinds to create a formal, immersive structure, so we thought it was time to look back at all our ‘Asia Pacific Triennial of Contemporary Art’ Watermall projects since 1993.
Follow the APT8 installation on our Flickr albums before the opening weekend on 21-22 November.
