As a collaborative exhibition between NUS Museum and Gertrude Contemporary Art Spaces, And The Difference Is will explore how interpersonal engagement can activate and galvanise aspirational contractual gestures, making true connections and encouraging real reciprocity between two cultures. The works in this exhibition will focus on personal interpretations of place and self, examining the potential for cultural difference to be reviewed through emphasizing our shared compulsion to imagine, mythologise and create.
