Event Details

Throughout history, humans adopted myths as a tool to understand the world around them.

From prehistoric cave drawings and Ancient Greece to contemporary art, artists have embraced mythology within their practice to tell stories and more recently to reinvent history.

During a time of social distancing, rise of biopolitics and the breakdown of daily routines HOFA Gallery presents Myth-Making exhibition, to explore a concept which is an integral part of the artistic aesthetic language.

Through examining these works through the lens of Myth-Making, the exhibition aims to achieve two interrelated goals: to analyse individual artists and the multifaceted artistic practices, as well as to explore the historical and cultural relevance of myth-making.

While we continue to occupy the digital world more so than ever before, Myth-Making welcomes the viewer into the 3D virtual viewing room, encouraging a shared experience of celebration of artistic practice and reinvention of tradition.
