Love is one of the most basic and primal needs for human beings. This multimedia exhibition showcases love in all of its myriad forms – romantic love, desire, love of family, young love and the love of mature partners. This exhibit also explores the euphoria of reciprocal love, the agony of a lost love and the challenges of loving oneself.
