First artists revealed for 10th Asia Pacific Triennial

21 artist and collectives revealed for APT10 - as well as region specialisations - offering a balance between the deep dive and the spectacular.

The Asia Pacific Triennial (APT) is not only a milestone exhibition for Queensland Art Gallery / Gallery of Modern Art (QAGOMA) – but one for the broader region. Celebrating its 10th anniversary this year, the exhibition has charted the cultural, political, societal and environmental shifts that have shaped this cluster of nations – at times those shifts tectonic, and for others, the subtle nuances that time reveal.

With the announcement this week of the first list of artists to be included in APT10 we get a sense of it being a dynamic exhibition punctuated by large installations, spatially exciting, and a solid toe-dip into some new territory including Northern Oceania, reimagine the histories of exchange through the works of Macassan and Yolgnu artists, and Taiwanese Indigenous artists.
