Dec 07 - May 04
Delving into our fascination with super heroes and monsters in contemporary pop culture, We Could Be Heroes will examine the relationship between today’s super heroes and the ancient quests of mythological and religious heroes against villainous monsters. An overabundance of super hero movies has been produced around the world of late, from Hollywood to Chinese cinema to Bollywood. Through contemporary artworks, the exhibition will explore the complexity of the myth of the hero, the hero’s relationship to the monster, how that monster was created, and why, for many, comic-book mythologies are becoming the new morality of the 21st century.
