Full Artist List For Asia Pacific Triennial 2018 Released

On August 1st, the Queensland Art Gallery | Gallery of Modern Art (QAGOMA) released the full list of artists participating in the ninth edition of the Asia Pacific Triennial of Contemporary Art. The lineup comprises over 80 artists and collectives from more than 30 countries in Asia, the Pacific and Australia.

Participants include Chinese contemporary artist Qiu Zhijie, who will create an enormous site-specific ink painting titled Map of Utopia (2018) at the Gallery of Modern Art in late August for APT9. Based in Beijing, Qiu is renowned for his multidisciplinary, trans-historical reflection on knowledge and daily life. Through a variety of mediums, idioms and cultural frameworks, he strives to achieve a notion of “total art,” encompassing rich dialogues with Chinese traditions, contemporary art, philosophy and social engagement. 

QAGOMA director Chris Saines revealed in the press statement that other highlights of APT9 will be Kuwaiti artist Monira Al Qadiri’s video installation exploring the waning pearling industry in the Persian Gulf, titled DIVER (2018), as well as the installation My Forest is Not Your Garden (2016–18) by Singapore-based artists Robert Zhao Renhui and Donna Ong. 

APT9 will take place at QAGOMA from November 24th, 2018 to April 28th, 2019.
