Inward & Outward: A review of the 7th Asia Pacific Triennial [APT7]

The 7th Asia Pacific Triennial runs until 14 April 2013 at the Queensland Art Gallery | Gallery of Modern Art in Brisbane, Australia.

“APT7 feels more like the future than the past … The exhibition illustrates the way Australia grapples with its sense of belonging in the Asia Pacific microworld. The denseness of this show, however, suggests that the question of how we resolve our place has become even more complex. The weaving together of work by so many artists means national borders become blurred and what emerges are our similarities and not our differences. APT7 recommends we turn our gaze both inward and outward. If you’ve never been to QAGOMA then maybe it’s time you went”.
