Following on from the successful inaugural exhibition in 2006, we again bring you many more alterNATIVE perspectives from this big brown land, Australia.

Coinciding with and responding to the state government-run 7th Asia Pacific Triennial in Queensland, the other APT features a range of artworks from Australian-based artists of various cultural backgrounds and artforms.

There is a special focus on Australian-based artists representing Melanesian backgrounds to include Papua New Guinea, West Papua, Australian South Sea Islander, Kanaky and the Torres Strait, along with Aboriginal, Maori, Tongan, Samoan, Hmong, Japanese, Filipina and others.

This new instalment of the other APT has a concentrated feature on performance and music video as unique artforms that enable mainstream acceptance of culturally diverse expression, from artists Jessica Mauboy & Stan Walker, Gurrumul & Blue King Brown, Polytoxic & Samuel Tupou, Sietta, Lisa Hilli, Eric Bridgeman, Maupower, Cape Yorks own East Coast Poets and artist/curator Jenny Fraser.

The contemporary artforms of installation, weaving, graphic design, documentary, painting, tribute songs, photography and Aboriginal tattooing are represented by artists Shireen Malamoo, Otis Williams, Vicki West, Angela Torenbeek, Sam Cook, Jandamarra Cadd, Australian South Sea Islanders (Port Jackson), Edward Obara, Luke Mallie, Af Wensi and Monica Kirk.

A number of Far North Queensland-based emerging and younger photographers and designers are also featured including Keith Goldsby- Smith, Jillibalu Barns-Riley, Ayaka Hamatani, Nancy Chang, Tenisha Fuller and Niki Filitonga.

This show is another love job by cyberTribe. No Funding was received for 'the other APT'. We're accustomed to art dialogue being taboo in Queensland, but we know that you will enjoy the artworks online anyway.

Onwards in 2013!
