The Queensland Art Gallery states an exhibition of modern art works from Asia and the Pacific has been a hit with audiences.
The sixth Asia Pacific Triennial of Contemporary Art in Brisbane included installations from artists in North Korea, Burma and China.
On average 4,000 people a day attended the exhibition, which ended its four-month run on Monday.
Works on show ranged from a stuffed deer covered in glass bulbs to reggae music from the Pacific Islands.
The Queensland Art Gallery’s deputy director Lynne Seear states audiences are becoming more attracted to modern art.
“They’re contemporary thinkers in Queensland,” she said.
“They want to know what is happening in the world, what is happening now, what is current.”
The event also proved popular beyond Queensland’s borders with a quarter of visitors coming from interstate.
