‘The 3rd Asia Pacific Triennial’
Sep 1999 - Jan 2000

Art works by more than 77 artists from 20 countries and regions were included in 'The 3rd Asia Pacific Triennial of Contemporary Art' (APT3) around the central theme 'Beyond the Future'. The art covered a range of media including performance, sculpture, painting, installation, textile, video, new technology and photography. Artists were from Japan, China, Hong Kong, South Korea, Taiwan, Indonesia, the Philippines, Malaysia, Thailand, Singapore, Vietnam, India, New Zealand, Papua New Guinea, New Caledonia, Australia and, for the first time, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, Niue, and Wallis and Futuna Islands.

APT3 included a strong emphasis on artists whose work crosses boundaries between past and future and between craft, tradition and contemporary art. Many of the works invited audience interaction while artistic collaborations across cultures and art forms featured strongly.

New components of the Triennial included the APT3 website and the Virtual Triennial presented in partnership with MAAP99-Multimedia Art Asia Pacific. The Screen Culture program included short films, video works and animation, and the APT Lounge provided a reading and research area for visitors.
