Electric Man was once a tracks worker. But after encountering a fuse box at the local railway station, he becomes a superhero. Loosely based on the narrative of Robin Hood, this character first came to comic-book artist Diego Pizarro as a means of addressing global imbalances of power and the unequal distribution of resources around the world. Experience the exhibition 11 – 29 November.
Looking for another local story? House of Mother Tongue, House of Other Tongue is an exploration of place, language and the migrant experience. These twin exhibitions are created particularly for Footscray’s Vietnamese community and allies, and address settler colonial legacies of monolingualism and its impact on minority languages. This event is designed to be experienced in three parts, and audiences are encouraged to sign up to the Singing Bus ride 12 – 26 November and the Language and Community Symposium on 27 November.
