‘The First Asia Pacific Triennial’
Sep 1993 - Dec 1993

'The First Asia Pacific Triennial of Contemporary Art' (APT1) was the first project of its kind in the world to focus on the contemporary art of Asia and the Pacific. In undertaking the APT, the Gallery recognised the need for an ongoing series of exhibitions and forums which initiate dialogue on the art of this important geo-political region. The Gallery worked closely with advisors and selectors from Australia and across the region to bring the Triennial to fruition.

APT1 featured nearly 200 works by 76 artists from South-East Asia (Indonesia, Malaysia, The Philippines, Singapore, Thailand, Vietnam); the East Asia (China, Hong Kong, Japan, South Korea) and the South Pacific (New Zealand, Papua New Guinea, Australia).
