It’s that time on the calendar when Brisbane hosts the Asia-Pacific Triennial. If you live in Brisbane or are visiting over the next few months I’d urge you to check it out. It’s big, it’s colourful, the work is clever and diverse and it’s free. On the opening night, I spent at least eight hours wandering the halls of GOMA and parts of QAG with my genius girlfriend and we’ll being going back to look at the works we didn’t get to see. If you consider yourself hermeneutically challenged when it comes to art, as I do, I’ve found that quickly reading the ‘Information for Children’ plaque fixed next to the work is sufficient to keep the conversation going and at least you’ll get to fool some of the people some of the time. There are plenty of fantastic works, and again I urge you to go see them for yourself. By the way, did I mention it’s free?
