Virtual Opening Reception with Curator Tour of the Exhibition

Join the curator and artists of Behind the Mask for a virtual opening reception and exhibition tour. Space is limited for this zoom event. Register at eventbrite.

Behind the Mask investigates the role of the mask in contemporary artistic explorations and understandings of race, gender, sexuality, mythology, histories, and futures. The centrality of the mask is paramount to the artists’ unique aesthetic lexicons and used as a tool, both for cultural remembrance and as an icon of contemporary identity politics.

Behind the Mask is guest curated by Sarah Umles, interdisciplinary artist and founder-director of The Residency Project. Artists exhibited include Jack Black, Skount Garcia, Ashley Johnson and Alicia Piller.
