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

SAM, in partnership with CHIJ Our Lady Queen of Peace, Geylang Methodist School (Primary), Haig Girls’ School, Mayflower Primary School and St. Anthony’s Primary School, presents Between the World and Us—A Think! Contemporary Primary School Virtual Exhibition, the ninth edition of the Think! Contemporary programme. This is the programme’s first virtual presentation, showcasing 18 artworks created in 2020.
