For Joshibi University’s International Special Lecture Program, we are delighted to welcome Reuben Keehan, curator of Contemporary Asian Art at the Queensland Art Gallery / Gallery of Modern Art located in Brisbane, Australia. Keehan has long-term personal and professional links with Japan and works actively to exhibit Japanese artists.

Since 2012, Keehan has worked as a co-curator for the Asia Pacific Triennial of Contemporary Art (APT), which has a 30-year history and showcases contemporary art of Asia and the Pacific, including Australia and New Zealand. The APT has brought together the work of more than 650 artists and groups from across 50 countries in the Asia Pacific region.

Steady acquisition of APT exhibited works by Queensland Art Gallery / Gallery of Modern Art has resulted in a comprehensive and unrivalled collection of internationally significant works by leading artists from throughout the Asia-Pacific region dating from the 1980s to the present day. The collection contains creative voices of world-renowned contemporary artists alongside collaborations with local communities and arts makers.

For his lecture at Joshibi University, Keehan will introduce women artists from Japan exhibited at the APT.
