    The difference between you and me is an intergenerational exhibition of pictures about people. It examines how selected artists from Australia and elsewhere pictorially represent themselves and others around them, building new, open individualities in the process. The artists’ distinctive figurative practices—that include film, video, painting and drawing—communicate by activating empathic and emotional recognitions and feelings in the viewer.
