    Daniel Boyd and Manuel Ocampo are included in The 7th Asia Pacific Triennial of Contemporary Art (APT7).

    Established in 1993, The Asia Pacific Triennial of Contemporary Art (APT) is the Queensland Art Gallery | Gallery of Modern Art’s flagship international contemporary art event. It is the only major exhibition series in the world to focus exclusively on the contemporary art of Asia, the Pacific and Australia. APT7 continues the series’ forward-thinking approach to questions of geography, history and culture and how these questions are explored through the work of contemporary artists.

    APT7 marks the twentieth anniversary of the APT, and presents an opportunity to reflect on the unprecedented transformations that have occurred in Australia, Asia and the Pacific over the past two decades. Key themes include transforming landscapes, varied engagements with the city, and the adaptability of local cultures in today's globalised world.

    Occupying the entire Gallery of Modern Art and key spaces at the Queensland Art Gallery, APT7 will feature new and recent works by 75 senior and emerging artists and groups from 27 countries across the region. Major groups of works by younger-generation artists from Indonesia and Vietnam reflect the exciting scenes emerging in those countries. The diversity and depth of Australian Aboriginal art is expressed in the work of five artists, representing some of the most dynamic aspects of Australian art today.

    Just sing what you feel is a new installation by Melbourne artist Jon Campbell at the National Gallery of Victoria, that encourages people of all ages to contribute to, and play with, contemporary art and music. 

    Drawing inspiration from everyday life, language and rock ‘n’ roll, Campbell will create an interactive space for children and families at the NGV that celebrates summer in Melbourne.

    Campbell takes motifs from Australian culture and transforms them into a colourful display of words and illustrations encouraging audiences to look more closely at the world around them, finding meaning and beauty in the everyday.  

    just sing what you feel is a three-part installation of music and visual art. Children and families are invited to create their own DIY backyard experience using Campbell’s colourful drawings of everyday outdoor items including deck chairs, BBQs or plants.

    The more vocal visitors can sing a duet with Campbell in interactive karaoke booths. Children watch, listen, sing along to and record Campbell’s yeah, yeah, yeah song.
    The final space celebrates the ‘yeah’ flag, a concept developed by Campbell in 2004 which aims to create a new way of thinking about our future.

    just sing what you feel
