  • 2012.12.08-2013.04.14
    Gallery of Modern Art (GOMA) and Queensland Art Gallery (QAG), Brisbane, Australia

    The Asia Pacific Triennial of Contemporary Art (APT) is QAGOMA’s flagship contemporary art series. Since 1993, the APT series has drawn more than three million visitors with an ever-evolving mix of exciting and important contemporary art by more than one thousand artists from the region.

    The APT takes over both QAG and GOMA every three years with an exhibition, film programs, learning initiatives, Children’s Art Centre projects and a dedicated public program of talks and workshops.

    The series has seen the Gallery develop long-standing partnerships throughout the region and helped build one of the world’s most significant collections of contemporary Asian and Pacific art.

    The Asia Pacific Triennial of Contemporary Art (APT) Exhibition Archive includes an extensive collection of material for each APT from 1993.


    For this landmark tenth edition, QAGOMA’s Asia Pacific Triennial looks to the future of art and the world we inhabit together. It’s rich with stories of how to navigate through time and space, reimagine histories and explore connections to culture and place.

    ‘The 10th Asia Pacific Triennial of Contemporary Art’ (APT10) included 69 projects with new and recent work by emerging and established artists and collectives, together comprising more than 150 individuals from 30 countries. It includes works of art that are by turn highly personal, deeply political, and full of joy.

    Including major new and recently commissioned works, APT involves a great depth of research by the Gallery’s in-house curators working collaboratively with a network of artists across wide and diverse geographies from Australia and the Asia Pacific region.

    As visitors to past APT’s will anticipate, the expansive onsite exhibition experience across both our galleries, QAG and GOMA, features a great wealth of materials and techniques, from large-scale installations and immersive multimedia artworks to sculpture, textiles, paintings, photography and video. APT10 includes three curated cinema programs, interactive artist projects for children and families, plus a closing weekend Festival.
