In our current global society, it is no longer rare for generational memories and feelings to be shared across borders, though conflicts are also simultaneously increasing due to economic imbalance and a differing sense of values. With a focus on practitioners based in the Asia-Pacific region, this exhibition introduced artists whose work provides potential clues to the questions of how to interact with others while living in this society and what still keeps us apart from each other. Featuring the work of 25 artists in total, the exhibition toured to four venues in three countries, with the exhibited artworks and artists changing each time.
