APT8 will feature works by more than 80 artists from over 30 countries, including Cambodia’s Leang Seckon and USA-based Tibetan artist Tsherin Sherpa. APT is a triennial devoted to examining developments in the contemporary art of Australia, Asia and the Pacific, and APT8 will focus especially on exploring how the human form can express cultural, social and political ideas in times of enormous change. Sherpa’s participation in the triennial also marks the first time Nepal has been represented at the prestigious event.
