In its tenth anniversary year, one of Australia’s longest running and most critically acclaimed contemporary exhibition series, the Asia Pacific Triennial of Contemporary Art (APT), returns to the Queensland Art Gallery | Gallery of Modern Art (QAGOMA) to inspire and delight audiences with its consistently fresh look at new art from across the region. APT10 showcases new and recent work by more than 100 emerging and established artists, collectives and filmmakers from more than 30 countries, including Kaili Chun (Kanaka Oiwi, Hawai’i); Gordon Hookey (Waanyi people, Australia); Kimiyo Mishima (Japan); Salote Tawale (Fiji/Australia); and Grace Lillian Lee and Uncle Ken Thaiday Snr (Meriam Mir people, Australia).
The APT10 publication includes curatorial scholarship and visual documentation of all 69 artists and projects included in the exhibition as well as direct dialogue with artists, accompanied by full-colour images of their works, studios and practices. Contributors including QAGOMA Asian and Pacific art curators Tarun Nagesh, Reuben Keehan and Ruth McDougall, among many more, provide rich interpretative texts on APT10 artists and projects that engages readers with the artworks and artists’ communities.
