Queensland Art Gallery & Gallery Of Modern Art has just announced APT8 Kids, a dynamic arts program full of hands-on and multimedia activities, with animated key spaces across both destinations this summer.
The Gallery’s Children’s Art Centre has worked closely with artists from over ten different countries on a dedicated series of twelve installations, artworks and activities, as well as a special publication for children. Part of the ‘8th Asia Pacific Triennial of Contemporary Art’, Kids APT is the Asia Pacific Triennial’s program of artworks and interactive activities developed for children and families by exhibiting artists, first staged in 1999 and experienced onsite by over half a million young visitors since.
Tamsin Cull, QAGOMA’s Head of Public Engagement, says APT8 Kids will connect young visitors with ideas behind the art practices of some of the region’s leading contemporary artists from countries including Vietnam, Myanmar, India, Kazakhstan and Mongolia:
‘These projects will enrich the audience’s knowledge of this culturally diverse region as they explore how artists reflect their culture, beliefs and ideas through art,’ Cull says.
Many of the activities will be presented in adapted version for APT8 Kids on Tour, visiting over fifty regional and remote venues throughout Queensland from January to April 2016.
APT8 will be held at the Queensland Art Gallery and Gallery of Modern Art from 21 November 2015 – 10 April 2016 and entry is free.
