the 6th APT

I visited the 6th Asia Pacific Triennial at the Gallery of Modern Art (GOMA) in Brisbane yesterday, and was quite blown away by the extraordinary standard of works exhibited this time round. Artworks range from huge skulls painted on silk drapes severasl meters high to piles of discarded cooking utensils - plus several video and multi media entries and even a solid brass motorcycle.
This exhibition is an absolute must visit for everyone interested in the arts. It is the only major international project that focusses on the contemporary arts of Asia, the Pacific and Australia.
With over 100 artists represented from countries such as China, N and S Korea, Turkey, India, Iran, Tibet, Fiji and so on, this exhibition is a wonderful opportunity for us to look into the minds of these dymanic artists.
Entry to the exhibition is free and it runs until April - but dont leave it til the end because I am sure - like me - you'll want to re-visit it once you've had a taste ...
