$75.00

The 6th Asia Pacific Triennial of Contemporary Art' (APT6) included the work of more than 100 artists from 25 countries, including collaborations and collectives, which reflect the diversity of practices across Asia, the Pacific and Australia.

APT6 had a number of specific focuses and thematic links while considering recent shifts in contemporary art in communities that have not been represented in the APT before, including works by artists from Tibet, North Korea (DPRK), Turkey and Iran, and from countries of the Mekong region such as Cambodia and Myanmar (Burma).

APT6 acknowledged the innovation that exists in performance and music in Asia and the Pacific with the 'Pacific Reggae Project' looking at the development of the musical genre in Hawai'i, the Solomon Islands, New Caledonia, Vanuatu and New Zealand.

The major thematic cinema program for APT6 looked west to explore cultural constellations across the Indian subcontinent (Sri Lanka, India, Bangladesh, Kashmir, Pakistan) to West Asia and the Middle East (including Afghanistan, Iran, Iraq, Turkey, Armenia, Lebanon, Israel and Palestine).
