Asia Pacific Triennial Announces Artists Participating in 2018 Edition

The Queensland Art Gallery | Gallery of Modern Art (QAGOMA) announced today that eighty artists and collectives from more than thirty countries will be participating in the Ninth Asia Pacific Triennial, which will be held from November 24, 2018 to April 28, 2019.

Among the artists exhibiting in the triennial is the Chinese contemporary artist Qiu Zhijie, who will create a massive ink painting, Map of Utopia, at the Gallery of Modern Art. The artist will draw from historical and political narratives, Chinese traditions, philosophy, and contemporary art to make the site-specific work.

According to Chris Saines, director of QAGOMA, other highlights of the triennial will include a display of large, circular sculptural forms created out of nassa shells, known as Tutana or Loloi, by members of the Gunantuna community in Papua New Guinea; the Kuwaiti artist Monira Al Qadiri’s four-sided video installation, DIVER 2018, which will simulate a large-scale aquarium in the gallery; and Vuth Lyno’s Cambodian spirit houses, retrieved from an iconic demolished structure, the White Building in Phnom Penh. According to a release, the exhibition will have a large representation of First Nations artists.
