Brisbane’s Gallery of Modern Art (GOMA) has once more left its doors open for a flourish of artists and creators in light of the APT8 Live event.

Curator Reuben Keehan hosted a tour of APT8 Live, taking interested parties and art buffs alike around the exhibit. Also featured over the course of APT8Live was artists Gabriella Mangano and Silvana Mangano’s There is no there 2015, an installation that takes current news events and portrays them through choreographed movements, gestures and sound; an engaging APT8 workshop called Super Critical Mass and a performance of SaVAge K’lub ActiVAtion.

APT8 Live is an ongoing program of artist performances and projects that expand on the exhibition’s emergent themes of performance and the body. After a vibrant array of live events on the opening weekend, APT8 Live continues to animate QAG and GOMA for the duration of the exhibition, giving performance an emphatic presence in the Triennial. The last APT8 Live will be held on Saturday 9 and Sunday 10 April to coincide with the closing weekend of The 8th Asia Pacific Triennial of Contemporary Art.
