APT9’s Final Days Celebrating Contemporary Asian Art at GOMA

The 9th Asia Pacific Triennial of Contemporary Art (APT9) marches on throughout April for its final weeks showcasing the colourful creativity collected from across the Asia-Pacific region.

Four months into its run featuring 400 plus artworks from over 80 artists and collaborations, there’s still time to witness the energy and complexity of these cross-cultural creations before they leave Brisbane on April 28.

Works such as The Wall: Asian (Un)Real Estate Project by Indonesian artist Aditya Novali, and Vuth Lyno’s House – Spirit out of Cambodia, are just some of the pieces earning the attention of visitors by capturing the reality of their homes whilst being extremely attainable for the local audience.

Joining the cavalcade of stunning visual art is a carefully curated selection of cinema from all corners of the Asia-Pacific.

The new frontier of Indian cinema is on full display at the New Bollywood program while fans of more intimate, introspective fare will want to check out Contemporary Mellow Dramas for the finest melancholy cinema from East Asia.

There’s always something exciting happening at GOMA this April with discussions, panels, special events and daily tours providing tonnes of ways to enjoy APT9, but the experience isn’t complete until you’ve debriefed over coffee at Hoo Ha Coffee Bar or perhaps something stronger at Maker if the screening of Hirokazu Koreeda’s 2018 Palme d’Or winning masterpiece, Shoplifters, has you feeling a little emotional.

Full details on APT9 are available here and be sure to hit up our Fish Lane restaurant directory for the run-down on where to grab a post-museum meal.
