Mongolian art selected for APT8 banner


The 8th Asia Pacific Triennial of Contemporary Art (APT8) will be presented at the Gallery of Modern Art (GOMA) and Queensland Art Gallery (QAG) in Australia, from November 21 to April 10, 2016 .
Four Mongolian painters, B.Baatar­zorig, B.Nomin, D.Uuriintuya and G.Gerelkhuu, who work in the highly distinctive Mongol zurag style (Mongolian traditional painting), will have their work featured in Australia.
D.Uuriintuya’s artwork titled “Path to Wealth” has been chosen to be the official banner for the APT8’s website.
The APT8 emphasizes performance, with live actions, video, kinetic art, figurative painting and sculpture. It explores how the human form can express cultural, social and political ideas in times of enormous change.
The exhibition features more than 80 artists from over 30 countries.
Mongolia, Nepal, the Kyrgyz Republic, Iraq and Georgia will be represented for the first time at the APT8.
The APT is the only exhibition series of the 160 biennials and triennials currently staged worldwide to focus on the contemporary art of Asia, Australia and the Pacific.
