Asia Pacific Triennial of Contemporary Art (APT), Southbank
The Asia Pacific Triennial of Contemporary Art (APT) is the Queensland Art Gallery, Gallery of Modern Art's flagship contemporary art event, and is the only major exhibition series to focus exclusively on the contemporary art of Asia, the Pacific and Australia. The first three Triennials demonstrated the diversity of contemporary art practice across the region, profiling 220 artists from 20 different countries. APT 2002 was radically different in that it considered developments in contemporary art over recent decades through in-depth explorations of 16 individual artists. APT5 (2006), the opening exhibition in GOMA, continued to develop this new model and featured a selection of works from 35 artists and two multi-artist projects (a total of 66 artists). In 2009, APT6 profiled the work of over 100 artists from 25 countries, including a number of artists and artist collaborations never seen in Australia before. It was the largest curated exhibition presented by an art museum in Australia, occupying the entire Gallery of Modern Art (GOMA) as well as galleries at the Queensland Art Gallery. Filipino artists who have participated are : Roberto Villanueva, Lazaro Soriano, Brenda Fajardo, Imelda Cajipe Andaya, SANGGAWA (Karen Flores, Mark Justiniani, Joy Mallari etc.), Jojo Legaspi, Alfredo & Isabel Aquilizan, Lani Maestro, and very recently, Manuel Ocampo.
