To July 7 Tate Adams: In Black & White.
Tate Adams’ (1922–2018) artistic career began and ended as a painter. Only a few of his early paintings survive. Connemara Girl was the only painting he kept. The work is typical of the small-scale figurative paintings he produced in Ireland before immigrating to Australia, and speaks of his reverence for Ireland. Adams would live into his nineties, a life of continuous artistic exploration. Largely thought of as a printmaker, Adams taught the first diploma of printmaking in Australia at RMIT. His colleagues and students number among the well-known in Australian art. Adjusting to the onset of macular degeneration in the latter half of his life, and when living almost reclusively in Townsville, Adams synthesised his artistic knowledge to create large-scale gouaches. In Black & White is a celebration of these large-scale black gouache paintings and the prints that derived from them. Produced towards the end of his life, they express Adams’ delight in exploring his Irish and broader artistic heritage and incorporating his Australian environment.

To July 14 Matilda Davis: The White Man’s Web.
Born and raised on Badjala/Batjala Djaa (Country) in Maryborough, Matilda Davis is a young creative producing paintings, photography, poetry and song. Davis pursues these creative interests to honour her maternal grandfather, her Aboriginal ancestors before him, her connection to Country and the first Badjala/Batjala Law/Lore – “What is good for Country comes first.” Davis’ great-great-grandmother was born on the banks of Moonabula (the Mary River), on beautiful Badjala/Batjala djaa. Moonabula flows out on to Korrawinga (the Great Sandy Strait), connecting the sweetwater of Moonabula with the saltwater of Korrawinga. Davis’ first solo exhibition, The White Man’s Web, responds to the suffering of Country, specifically Sea Country, confronting the colonial and capitalist legacy of extractive and exploitative use of land and water. Utilising waste found discarded on Badjala/Batjala beaches, bushland and waters, The White Man’s Web asks for us to consider not just the immediate impacts of environmental exploitation on Country, but the impacts on Indigenous communities; stories, totemic connections, and ability to practice culture.

As these varied and compelling artworks demonstrate, the Asia Pacific Triennial of Contemporary Art continues to be a pre-eminent platform for the art of Asia, Australia and the Pacific, surveying a vast and dynamic region through a series of exhibitions, forums and cultural exchanges. The diverse works in the Asia Pacific Triennial of Contemporary Art reflect an embrace of contemporary art in all its forms, ranging from the ceremonial to the conceptual, and from the deeply personal to the resolutely social.
