‘Asia Pacific Contemporary’ celebrates the Queensland Art Gallery | Gallery of Modern Art’s APT of Contemporary Art in its tenth iteration.

About this event

Featuring works that have appeared in the Triennial since its debut in the 1990s, and across media from painting and sculpture, to video, performance and works on paper, ‘Asia Pacific Contemporary’ showcases art from Aotearoa New Zealand, Australia, Cambodia, China, India, Indonesia, Pakistan, Papua New Guinea, Taiwan, Vanuatu and Vietnam.

As these varied and compelling artworks demonstrate, the Asia Pacific Triennial of Contemporary Art continues to be a pre-eminent platform for the art of Asia, Australia and the Pacific, surveying a vast and dynamic region through a series of exhibitions, forums and cultural exchanges. The diverse works in ‘Asia Pacific Contemporary’ reflect the APT’s embrace of contemporary art in all its forms, ranging from the ceremonial to the conceptual, and from the deeply personal to the resolutely social.

Miles High Showcase

Miles State High School Visual Arts Students

The Miles High Showcase presents an exciting and diverse exhibition of artwork created by students in the course of their studies this year.

The senior Visual Art students have been considering 'Scapes'. Thinking outside the landscape box, students were challenged to morph two contrasting environments - physical, social or emotional - into a single landscape. A selection of miniature-rise sculptures, also on show, have been created for installation in the school's outdoor environment.

The junior Visual Art students have been working on their sketching skills, creating still life pencil sketches, highlight the shading techniques they have learnt. An array of hand painted wooden boomerangs, also on show, have been crafted from scratch.

Reminding us that art can be incorporated into all areas of the school curriculum, the year 7 Humanities students have a display of Egyptian clay artefacts resulting from their study of Ancient Egyptian daily-life, significant individuals and rituals.
