About the exhibition
Between the World and Us—A Think! Contemporary Primary School Virtual Exhibition takes a look at the diverse experiences of Primary Four students during the COVID-19 pandemic. This exhibition reflects upon our chance experiences and choice encounters in the world through the eyes of these students, revealing their thoughts on the issues happening around them. This is a reminder that an experience or choice affects everyone differently.
Explore the artworks in four sections:
• The Stories
• The Spaces
• The People
• The Hope
