Every summer, a huge exhibition takes over Brisbane's Gallery of Modern Art. Every third summer, the same exhibition takes over the neighbouring Queensland Art Gallery too. And, some summers, GOMA throws a weekend-long festival to celebrate — which it's doing again in 2019 for the 9th Asia Pacific Triennial of Contemporary Art.

Running between Friday, January 18 and Sunday, January 20, the APT9 Summer Festival features a little bit of everything that makes Brissie's two major art galleries great. That means art, obviously, but also music, workshops, performances, parties and talks as well.

It also means a ticketed Summer Festival Up Late shindig on the Friday evening, with Ngaiire, Bottlesmoker and May Lyn on the multi-stage bill, as well as DJs, bars, food and pop-up shenanigans too. If you're keen to head along and mosey your way through APT9 by night, it'll set you back $26.

Other highlights from the mostly free three-day fest include morning yoga by the river, a drop-in claymation workshop with artist Souliya Phoumivong and a 30-minute interactive music tour of the exhibition with John Patterson from The Grates — and there's more where they came from.
