The exhibition will feature more than 100 works from artists hailing from more than 25 countries located in the Asia Pacific region including Asia, the Pacific and Australia. There will be many new exhibitors at APT, including artists from Tibet, North Korea, Turkey and Iran.

The APT will feature programs and projects on Asian Reggae, cinematic art in the subwestern part of Asia as well as an 11-day interactive artwork program for children during their summer break.
