Entitled Our Future Likes, the exhibition displays a variety of artwork, consisting of photography, graphics, sculptures, writing and more. The art explores the complexities of life online and how social media platforms can lead to a low self-esteem.

Artists such as Dolly Sen address the sentiments apps can bring such as anxiety and negativity. Her work includes a piece entitled What’s Crap App, a fantasy alternative app aimed at measuring the “unreasonableness of society’s expectations”.

The exhibition opens on the September 12 and closes on the November 16; entry is free for all visitors.
