About the Exhibition: Thousands of kids around the globe suffer from autism. These innocent children are widely misunderstood by the majority of people in their surroundings, sometimes even by their parents during the initial stages. Unlike common people, they view the world from an entirely different angle and their viewpoints might be worlds apart sometimes, but that does not mean that they are a defected or a subject to be bullied. They possess a high level of fluid intelligence, which refers to their ability to distinctively understand and solve new problems. We should understand these gifted personalities and help them nurture their unique brain functions, because frankly, since the beginning of the human race, it has never been the people with conventional perception who contributed to major revolution and inventions which led to phenomenal advancements in our world as we know it today. The artwork ‘A way to break beyond’ is based on the children diagnosed with autism, as well as on the hope and the optimism of their parents.

The exhibition will be open to all until 2 April.

Visiting hours: Monday to Thursday from 3:00pm to 9:00pm, Friday and Saturday (9:00am to12:00 noon and 5:00pm to 8:00pm), except for Sundays.
