Abstract or Summary

All cultures have myths and legends woven into the fabric of their traditions. Eleven artists and fourteen writers from Aotearoa, Cuba, Mexico and Spain respond to the idea of myths and legends, creating twelve posters that tell of legends and contemporary political myths, challenging our complacency with war, the planet, colonisation and life. Over nine months, we will reveal to you four posters at a time... allowing each to tell their tale in Maaori, Spanish and English. We encourage you to read these walls.
