Of the 160 biennials and triennials currently staged worldwide, the Asia Pacific Triennial of Contemporary Art is the only exhibition series to focus on the contemporary art of Asia, Australia and the Pacific.
With each iteration of the flagship Asia Pacific Triennial of Contemporary Art exhibition series, QAGOMA examines developments in the contemporary art of Australia, Asia and the Pacific. The exhibition features more than 80 artists from over 30 countries including significant Australian involvement.
New works include a structural installation of found materials by India’s Asim Waqif and a suspended sculpture by South Korea’s Haegue Yang. Special focus projects in APT8 include Kalpa Vriksha: Contemporary Indigenous and Vernacular Art of India and the Melanesian performance project Yumi Danis (We Dance).
