BEAUT (Brisbane & Elsewhere Art UnTriennial)
COMING APRIL 2019
Embracing the legacy of the Asia Pacific Triennial in Brisbane, BEAUT is a festival that activates the Brisbane artistic community to host and engage with local, national and international artists and artist run initiatives, consisting of exhibitions, workshops, panel discussions, talks, residencies, and publications.
BEAUT Festival 2019’s curatorial premise emphasises the principles of presence, convergence, and resistance, offering a localised accompaniment to QAGOMA’s APT9, favouring interstate and international collaboration. Embracing the resilience of the grassroots arts community as well as reflecting the institutional investment in the arts in Brisbane, BEAUT will showcase local artists and ARIs alongside their national and international peers from the Asia-Pacific region.
