Yesterday I visited the Gallery of Modern Art to see their latest exhibition, the 7th Asia Pacific Triennial of Contemporary Art (APT7). The exhibition showcases the works of 75 artists and artist groups from the Asia Pacific region and is touted as “the only major exhibition series that focuses on the contemporary art of Asia, the Pacific, and Australia”. It was a great way to spend a mostly overcast day (much better than getting rained on while queueing for brunch earlier in the morning) and, like every other exhibition I’ve visited at GoMA, it did not disappoint. Whether it was the visual wonder of Raqib Shaw’s Paradise Lost series or the mesmerising effect of Daniel Boyd’s A Darker Shade of Dark #1-4 video installation, there was a never-ending array of of artworks to lose yourself in. These are a few photos I snapped on my phone, and there are also a few more on my Instagram. If you’re in Brisbane and haven’t already visited APT7, I suggest you hop to it. You’ve got until April 14.
