The 8th Asia Pacific Triennial of Contemporary Art (APT8) is on in Brisbane at QAGOMA, the exhibition explores performance and the expression of human movement through video, kinetic form, sculpture and figure painting.

Australia is well represented amongst the 80 artists who are exhibiting from 30 across different countries, with first time representatives from Mongolia, Georgia, Iraq, Nepal, and the Kyrgyz Republic showing the expanding field of the creative across the region.

An outstanding new commission is by Haegue Yang from South Korea an elegantly suspended sculpture that is a must to be seen. Her artwork is space transforming as light, colour, objects and of course movement come to life and express current events across both social and political frameworks and modern art.  This piece uses 1000 vertical blinds and portrays the ever changing nature of existence.

It’s a great day out for the whole family with live performance, a full cinema program and much more.
