Urban legends are best described as cautionary or moralistic tales passed along by those who believe the incidents befell either people they know personally or acquaintances of friends or family members. Urban legends are set against the backdrop of contemporary times—the stories take place in shopping malls and coed dormitories and feature such up-to-date bogeymen as terrorists, AIDS, and inner-city gangs. In the exhibition the artists interpret Urban Legend in their own way. Both, Carlos Roque and Alvaro Verduzco mix popular culture and comic books to create narratives bordering on fantasy, and offer a unique approach to our contemporary universe.
