Experience highlights from our long-running Asia Pacific Triennial of Contemporary Art (APT) series of exhibitions, when ‘Asia Pacific Contemporary: Three Decades of APT’ featuring works of art commissioned or collected from APT1 (1993) through to APT9 (2018) tours Queensland from December 2021 until July 2024.
‘Asia Pacific Contemporary’ profiles key moments which has contributed so much to our audience’s engagement with and understanding of contemporary art and culture in the region and also underscores the success of the APT’s role in QAGOMA’s collection development strategies, highlighting internationally significant works by leading artists dating from the 1980s to the present day.
The exhibition includes works in a diversity of media including painting, sculpture, works on paper, video and performance, reflecting APT’s embrace of contemporary art in all its forms, ranging from the ceremonial to the conceptual, and the deeply personal to the resolutely social. These vibrant and innovative works encompass diverse customary practices and cultural encounters, and illustrate extraordinary social change over almost thirty years.
