Slide Life is short,
and art long
The words are from Aphorisms by Hippocrates,
the Father of Medicine, and after two millenniums and a half,
they are still valid and insightful.

Slide Opportunity Fleeting,
Perilous, and
Judgment Difficult.

We are living in a fleeting, perilous and difficult time, and it is hoped that art can guide us to once again scrutinising the nature of being human.

Slide The exhibition considers visual arts as symbolic power understanding our identity
There are certain taboos and transgressions can be re-examined
during the Post-COVID 19 Era.
We question the validity of current globalisation.
@ Pile, Rodrigo Moreirag, Installation

Slide The show explores democratisation of art by examining the means of communication instead of means of production. In many artists’ interviews, we heard some words in common: fragility, uncertainty, power-struggle and identity, which are coded in their visual languages. @ You I She He Edie Xu

Slide our experience unfolds more stories that have individual and collective characters. Beyond Borders presents kaleidoscopic views and
comments on different borders
in our society:
race, gender, class, age, and so forth.
