BRISBANE.- Spectacular large-scale installations and compelling sitespecific and performance works feature in ‘The 6th Asia Pacific Triennial of Contemporary Art’ (APT6), which opens tomorrow.

APT6 shows at the Gallery of Modern Art and Queensland Art Gallery, in Brisbane, until April 5, 2010.

Queensland Art Gallery Director Tony Ellwood said APT6 was the most ambitious Triennial exhibition yet, in physical scale and geographic scope and included cinema programs, public programs and Kids’ APT.

‘The Queensland Government has been Founding Supporter of the Triennial since the series commenced, and Santos is presenting sponsor this year as part of an unprecedented fiveyear sponsorship agreement with the Gallery.

‘APT6 is also assisted by the Australian Government through the Australia Council, and the Visual Arts and Craft Strategy.

‘Each APT exhibition aims to reach further and deeper into the region and APT6 is a superb example of this ambition. The show presents, for the first time, art by practitioners from Iran, Turkey, Tibet, and countries in the Mekong region, including Cambodia and Myanmar, as well as a major group of works from artists employed by the Mansudae Art Studio in Pyongyang, North Korea (DPRK),’ he said.

‘The APT6 exhibition presents 313 art works by more than 160 artists from over 25 countries. The APT6 cinema programs present 260 feature and short films by more than 120 filmmakers.

‘This weekend’s free public opening celebration involving many of the exhibiting artists, will feature talks, performances, films, programs for children and families, and a Saturday night performance event, Pacific Reggae Sounds.’

Mr Ellwood said one of the highlights for visitors will be the six-panel mirror mosaic, Lightning for Neda 2009, commissioned by the Gallery from Iranian artist Monir Shahroudy Farmanfarmaian. At 85 years of age Monir is the most senior artist to participate in an APT and this work demonstrates age is no barrier to great art making. It is a privilege to bring her story to our audiences.’
