APT10 Extended

APT10: Extended includes a selection of installations, paintings, sculptures, photographs, and video from ‘The 10th Asia Pacific Triennial of Contemporary Art’.

About the exhibition

The tenth chapter of the Asia Pacific Triennial of Contemporary Art (APT10) includes 69 projects by more than 150 emerging and established artists from over 30 countries across the Asia Pacific region.

APT10 explores the idea of contemporary art in the literal sense of ‘happening at the same time’ and ‘occurring in the present’. Some artists reflect on the influence of past events and encounters that hold meaning today, while others question what the future might look like and who will have a role in creating it. Collectively, they provide a window onto our dynamic and diverse part of the world.
