Presented by the Queensland Art Gallery, Gallery of Modern Art (QAGOMA), the exhibition includes vibrant and innovative works reflecting diverse customary practices and cultural encounters and illustrates extraordinary social change over almost 30 years.
Mayor Karen Williams said the city was fortunate to have been chosen as one of the tour venues for the 30th anniversary of this exhibition.
“The Asia Pacific Triennial has been a significant exhibition series for QAGOMA and it’s wonderful to be able to share highlights from leading contemporary artists in the region, from the 1980s to the present day,” Cr Williams said.
“This is a wonderful opportunity for Redland residents to experience contemporary art from the Asia Pacific region and I’m very excited we are able to host this exhibition in our Cleveland gallery.”
QAGOMA Director Chris Saines said she was thrilled to have the opportunity to tour this exciting exhibition.
“It profiles key moments from the Gallery’s flagship exhibition series, which has contributed so much to our audience’s engagement with and understanding of contemporary art and culture in the region,” Mr Saines said.
The exhibition reflects APT’s embrace of contemporary art in all its forms and includes painting, sculpture, works on paper, video and performance. A floor talk and morning tea with QAGOMA Curator, Contemporary Asian Art, Rueben Keehan will be held on September 3 at 10am. Bookings are essential. Visit the Redland Art Gallery website.
