YOU ARE ME 展覽除反映出當今的全球現況，主要探討現今物理性的面向，雖是拉遠了人類彼此之間的距離，展出作品闡述人類與自然的關係、種族膚色、打破國土疆界等層面，亦反映出時下社會的潮流脈絡。

With the current global pandemic and the ongoing climate crisis, Nature is sending all of us a very clear message: “Take care of one another or see the planet, as you know it, perish”.
Likeminded people, millions around the world, have joined in a single effort to protect one another. Quarantined behind state borders, staying put at home and guarded by facemasks, humanity everywhere is taking time-out to rethink itself. Noticing people once ignored, appreciating essential workers whose jobs were once deemed low grade.
Humanity is rethinking its values. What the pandemic revealed in plain sight is that the current macro-economic model of profit before people and planet is not serving us. The time has come for a new human centered economy in which the wellbeing of people is deemed more important than money. In which the unit of measure is each person, not each dollar, and the markets exist to serve our common good.
In the experience of this shared humanity you are me. We are all in this together and by the laws of nature we are the same.
The YOU ARE ME exhibition is a reflection on the currents times. It considers the new geography of our socially distanced yet globally united humanity. It presents artworks that question social constructs of race, personal space and borderlines. It also introduces current trends influencing artistic processes.
We are launching the Taiwanese premier of HUMANÆ. Created by Brazilian photographer ANGELICA DASS, this internationally acclaimed artwork is loved and admired by diverse audiences, government leaders and social influencers from all spheres of life. Angelica’s TED Global Talk has more than 2,500,000 views touching the hearts of people from all over the world.
