Past Exhibitions

My Hero! Contemporary Art & Superhero Action

My Hero! presents a collection of international artworks that explore iconic superhero imagery, along with reimagined interpretations of our classic heroes. The artists in the exhibition both pay homage to these universal idols, and also present critical questions about their popularity and God-like stature. Some artists in the exhibition spin the fantasy further by imagining the hero as a child, as an aging being and even as an animal.
