Contemporary Explorations in an Ancient Tradition

MASKS are a rich tradition in both popular and sacred cultures. They dramatize and display the contact between humans and the supernatural. They become a second face, whereby a new identity is acquired and the depicted spirit is incarnated. This powerful tradition inspires fourteen artists, from a wide range of art-making styles and backgrounds, whose work we are proud to present in an exhibit that is simultaneously exuberant, and profound.
