The Asia Pacific Triennial has recently opened at GOMA (Gallery of Modern Art) in Brisbane. I always look forward to every 3 year event as it showcases the most exciting new art coming out of the Asia and Pacific regions. In fact it’s the biggest display of Asian/Pacific art in the world. This is the 8th time around, and as usual there’s some spectacular and interesting stuff, ranging from large installations, paintings, and videos. I’ve visited 3 times already (lucky it’s free!) and have taken lots of pics. My favourite work is a large projection inside a cave like area (you have to duck down to get in). I don’t have any images of that but hope to next time I go….will show you then! Another fav is the huge installation of large timbers created from old jetty material…standing on sections results in a fantastic soundscape. I’ll gradually load up pics…too many to show in one go, so keep posted!
Last chance to see the brilliant show by Cai Guo-Quiang at GOMA, Brisbane….it closes 11 May, and is really worth seeing. There are some amazing installations including HEAD ON and HERITAGE, and a few other things as well. Here’s a slide show for you to enjoy, of Heritage.
Another for Head On
