'The Asia Pacific Triennial of Contemporary Art' (APT) is QAGOMA's flagship exhibition focussed on the work of Asia, the Pacific and Australia. This eighth edition of the APT emphasised the role of performance in recent art, with live actions, video, kinetic art, figurative painting and sculpture exploring the use of the human form to express cultural, social and political ideas, and the central role of artists in articulating experiences specific to their localities.

APT8 included more than 80 artists and groups, an ongoing program of artist performances and projects; a conference as part of the opening program; extensive cinema programs; publications; and activities for kids and families. Visit the full APT8 exhibition archive.

The list of objects below represents the many works acquired from APT8 for the QAGOMA Collection.
