Generation Why

This student art exhibition explores the theme: “Generation Why” –a generation that finds itself at the crossroads of the past, present, and future. In our modern, ever-evolving world, we find ourselves nostalgic towards tangibles and intangibles, experiences, impressions, and emotions of the past – suspended in our memories, forever out of reach. "Generation Why" is more than a label; it’s a generation that thrives on questioning and wondering about the world it has inherited and the one it is shaping. We are a generation caught in a whirlwind of rapid transformation, grappling with profound societal shifts and technological advances. As we stand at this pivotal moment, we can’t help but wonder how we will situate ourselves in this ever-changing landscape.

The artists featured in this exhibition approached the theme in diverse ways–from expressing the way we reconstruct the places of our youth to how our unique generational experiences shape our identities. Their works are a bridge between the past and the present, capturing our generation perspective on how to make sense of our past and present as we forge a path into the future. The exhibition beckons you to question, to wonder, and to reflect on what it means to be part of this transformative generation.
