Hasn’t time flown? One month has passed already in this new year.
This month’s blog is mainly images. GOMA (Gallery of Modern Art) and QAG (Queensland Art Gallery) are currently hosting APT7. It is on till 14th April.
The following quote is from the web site: www.qagoma.qld.gov.au Established in 1993, The Asia Pacific Triennial of Contemporary Art (APT) is the Queensland Art Gallery | Gallery of Modern Art’s flagship international contemporary art event. It is the only major exhibition series in the world to focus exclusively on the contemporary art of Asia, the Pacific and Australia. APT7 continues the series’ forward-thinking approach to questions of geography, history and culture and how these questions are explored through the work of contemporary artists.
The following are my favourite pieces:
Immediately inside the entrance of GOMA.
Crocodiles and other structures from Papua New Guinea. Note the large wall piece on the right.
Pattern! Detail of large wall piece near crocodiles.
Rusty metal baskets. These are very large sculptural pieces.
A visit to GOMA also included the viewing of the new sculpture near the river. It sure does have people talking.
Another exhibition, This time at the Warwick Art Gallery The work is by three textile artists: Els van Baarle (Netherlands), Glenys Mann (Australia) and Cherylin Martin (UK and Netherlands).I wasd honoured to be asked to speak at the opening. The exhibition is on till 10th February.www.warwickartgallery.com.au .
I have had a very busy couple of weeks relocating. This year brings another residency at Sturt. I am delighted to have obtained a year long one. It will be a very interesting and challenging year. I have come full circle. This is where I started my blog and recorded those adventures.
