GOMA - APT 9

These poor GOMA photos had stayed in a folder, waiting patiently to be edited since the beginning of December. Luckily if you're in Brisbane, the Asia Art Triennial (APT 9) is on until April so there's still time.  This trip Ben's Dad accompanied us and despite not sharing the same love of art as Ben and I, I was impressed at the attention span he had - big credit to GOMA for making it such a visual feast too!
On wards to the photo spam!

in the midst of darkness 2a

prime ministers, seven leaders, the richest
This piece by Vincent Namatjira was perhaps my favourite.

 The top row is his 'Prime Ministers' series, the middle row the 'Seven leaders' (all indigenous leaders and their canvases didn't have frames and the bottom row, 'The Richest'

live bee display

They had a display of live bees where the front would open up at a specific time and then remain closed afterwards. There was an outlet attached to the side of the building where the bees where able to freely come and go into nature - super clever and engaging!
