The Trienale includes the work of leading contemporary Indian artists.

The Sixth Asia Pacific Triennial of Contemporary Art in Brisbane, which officially closes on 5 April, featured one of India's most prominent contemporary artists, Subodh Gupta.

"All the Indian works are unique artistic statements and I am pleased to see such a prominent display of Indian contemporary art here in my home city of Brisbane", said Mr Varghese.

"Through such initiatives we bring the people of Australia and India closer. Our two countries are increasingly sharing their cultural heritage as young artists travel back and forth across the Indian Ocean.
