GOMA in Cooroy

Don’t miss out on the Gallery of Modern Art (GOMA) visit to Cooroy’s Butter Factory Arts Centre (BFAC) which will be in the hinterland town until 15 January with its free interactive APT9 Kids on Tour program.

The show brings with it activity stations based on the practice of artists currently on show at GOMA’s 9th Asia Pacific Triennial of Contemporary Art (APT9) enabling children and families to explore the diverse art styles and approaches from Australia, Asia and the Pacific. The program features the EXPLORE interactive, a virtual experience featuring contemporary artworks in the APT9 exhibition.

“Kids on tour is always an exciting addition to our program,” BFAC co-ordinator Alicia Sharples said.

“We’re proud to host it for a third year here at BFAC and having the APT9 featured in 2019 makes for some

really engaging activities and concepts for families.”

APT9 Kids on Tour includes activities developed by the Children’s Art Centre in collaboration with artists Pauline

Kimei Anis (Bougainville), Sadik Kwaish Alfraji (Iraq/The Netherlands), Gary Carsley (Australia/The Netherlands),

Nona Garcia (The Philippines), Vincent Namatjira (Australia) and Jakkai Siributr (Thailand).

APT9 Kids on Tour is open at BFAC from 10am to 3pm, Tuesday to Sundays until January 15. For more information visit
