Travel Tip: Art and Archaeology in Australia
The 7th Asia Pacific Triennial of Contemporary Art

The 7th Asia Pacific Triennial of Contemporary Art
BRISBANE  •  Queensland Art Gallery  •  Ongoing

Occupying the entire Gallery of Modern Art and key spaces at the Queensland Art Gallery, APT7 features new and recent works by 75 senior and emerging artists and groups from 27 countries across the region. Major groups of works by younger-generation artists from Indonesia and Vietnam reflect the exciting scenes emerging in those countries. The diversity and depth of Australian Aboriginal art is expressed in the work of five artists, representing some of the most dynamic aspects of Australian art today.

Papua New Guinea

Two co-curated projects explore specific focuses. Works from Papua New Guinea include a spectacular group of performance masks and painted and carved structures from New Britain and the Sepik, co-curated by architect Martin Fowler. Dominating the entrance and central atrium of the Gallery of Modern Art, this display reflects the idea of ephemeral structures, a central motif of APT7, and considers how the built environment influences people’s engagement with their surroundings and connection to place.
