The APT9 is the ninth of a string of triennials of the same name that stand as the flagship contemporary series of Brisbane’s largest art gallery. The five-month exhibition will represent the work of more than 80 artists, stretching across both the Queensland Art Gallery and Gallery of Modern Art (known collectively as QAGOMA). Australian artists will be showcased and will sit alongside works from other nations as far afield as Iraq and as close as NZ.

In 2018 the APT program will include a project co-commissioned by the Singapore Art Museum and artwork developed in partnership with the Dhaka Arts Centre in Bangladesh and Tjibaou Cultural Centre in New Caledonia.

While you’re at the galleries, scoot along to the QAG’s permanent collection, which includes works by Degas, Picasso, Tintoretto, Albert Namatjira, Tracey Moffatt and the great Queensland painter Ian Fairweather. You’ll also no doubt notice that the QAG and the GOMA, which are located in Brisbane’s cultural precinct of South Bank, are inarguably two of the best art galleries in Australia – vast, spacious buildings by the Brisbane River that are a wonderful architectural response to Brisbane’s climate.
