Experience and explore contemporary art from Queensland Art Gallery | Gallery of Modern Art’s ‘APT10: The 10th Asia Pacific Triennial of Contemporary Art’ through APT10 Kids on Tour.
APT10 Kids on Tour connects young visitors and their families with ideas and cultures from across Australia, Asia and the Pacific, celebrating community, diversity and mindful contemplation through a range of exciting, hands-on art-making activities.
Amidst a global pandemic and the different hardships and challenges that participating artists have faced, the projects included in APT10 Kids on Tour are full of optimism, with a distinct emphasis on inclusivity and the importance of celebrating diversity. Broadly, the projects also provide different perspectives that emphasise our common need for community and connectedness.
This years program will be shared with more than 188 venues across the state, from Dauan Island in the Torres Strait, to Mount Isa, Stonehenge, Texas and Brisbane.
APT10 Kids on Tour includes activities developed by QAGOMA’s the Children’s Art Centre in collaboration with artists Shannon Novak (Aotearoa New Zealand), Phuong Ngo (Australia / Vietnam), Syagini Ratna Wulan (Indonesia), Jamilah Haji (Thailand), Gidree Bawlee (Bangladesh) and Vipoo Srivilasa (Thailand / Australia).
These activities are specially designed for children and families, enabling Queensland communities to enjoy free activites at their local venue.
Available all day during the gallery's open hours. No bookings required.
