Shifting Strategies at QAGOMA

Outlining his vision for the future of Queensland Art Gallery/Gallery of Modern Art (QAGOMA), Chris Saines, the museum’s director appointed six months ago, said he was ready “to set a new course for the gallery” in an effort to make it the world’s “leading museum for the contemporary art of Australia, Asia and the Pacific.” He then proceeded to outline some exciting prospects –namely, landmark exhibitions by living international artists, a shift in curatorial focus for the Asia Pacific Triennial (APT) and general gallery restructuring—that future visitors to the museum can anticipate.
