QAGOMA is preparing for the tenth chapter of the Asia Pacific Triennial Exhibition
Queensland Art Gallery | The Modern Art Gallery (QAGOMA) is being rebuilt in preparation for the tenth chapter of the Asia-Pacific Triennial for Contemporary Art (APT10 on December 4th).
APT10 will have an extensive free exhibition at both gallery locations and will include a multi-strand cinema program, on-site and virtual events, seven artist projects for children and families, a two-day Up Late event in March 2022, and a full-color publication.
Queensland Art Secretary Leeanne Enoch comments, “This marks the tenth landmark time that QAGOMA has presented this bold and internationally acclaimed exhibition.
“For more than a quarter of a century, the Asia Pacific Triennial of Contemporary Art has presented some of the most exciting, inspiring and important works from Australia, Asia and the Pacific.
“Because of its geographic focus and intercultural awareness, the Asia-Pacific Triennial is unique among the recurring exhibitions of contemporary art that promote exceptional opportunities for cultural tourism and community development.”
Minister Enoch said that APT10 will showcase 69 projects from emerging and established artists and collectives from more than 30 countries and all summer through 25 will be an important contribution. The previous exhibition, APT9, drew 718,000 visitors, contributed nearly $ 35 million to the Queensland economy and generated more than 288,000 visitor nights.
“In a broader sense, the arts and culture sector contributes $ 8.5 billion to the state’s economy each year and supports more than 92,000 jobs for Queenslanders.”
Minister Enoch said exhibitions such as APT10 and the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York’s recent European masterpieces, were made possible by blockbuster funding from the Queensland government to QAGOMA.
“The Met was the sixth most-visited ticket exhibition since QAGOMA opened and attracted more than 191,000 visitors,” said Minister Enoch.
“Our investment in blockbuster funding helps QAGOMA showcase exclusive exhibitions like APT10 to create jobs, promote cultural tourism and generate positive economic results, especially in the run-up to the 2032 Brisbane Olympic and Paralympic Games when our art and Cultural experiences on the world stage. “
Chris Saines, director of QAGOMA, said the tenth chapter of the gallery’s flagship franchise will also include “new and newly commissioned work that is rich in stories of travel, travel, migrations and connections to place.
“APT10 Kids continues the tradition of the gallery’s children’s art center, which invites artists to develop interactive offerings that encourage young visitors and families to explore the diverse cultures of the region and develop an understanding of contemporary art.
“Six of the interactive elements will also be presented in more than 100 regional and remote locations from December to April as part of APT10 Kids on Tour.”
APT 10 runs from December 4, 2021 to April 25, 2022. For more information, visit qagoma.qld.gov.au/whats-on/exhibitions/apt10
