Here’s The Low Down On APT9 Returning To QAGOMA

By Catherine Blake - 22 Nov 2018

The Asia Pacific Triennial is back again for another multi-disciplinary romp through arts and culture in the Asia Pacific region. Featuring more than 80 artists and groups from over 30 different countries, the APT9 exhibition shines a light on conventional definitions of contemporary art, inviting visitors to scrutinise the relationship between art and the shifting social structures across the Asia Pacific region.

For those of you keeping count, this is the ninth time QAGOMA has brought us the APT since its inception in 1993. The past 25 years has seen no fewer than eight exhibitions of works from contemporary artists in the Asia Pacific, each instalment bringing an explosive and vibrant cross-cultural insight to the halls of QAGOMA.

The riotous showcase will be on exhibition from Saturday 24 November until Sunday 28 April, and we strongly recommend getting down there and treating your eyes. It’s completely free and includes a cinema program, an academic symposium, and plenty of fun creative activities for children, as well as a bunch of special events throughout the exhibition.

Mark the weekend of 24 and 25 November in your diaries, APT9 is gonna go off.
