“All history is in some way Myth – protected in glass cabinets and recorded in archives, but also half preserved in whispers shared in the corner shop.”

Artists Wignall & Moore worked with the local community to create new myths for Southwark. These are shown in the writing, poems, paintings and sculptures on display here, alongside artefacts from the Cuming Collection.
