Join the artists and curator for a virtual tour of the exhibition, Behind the Mask, at Angels Gate Cultural Center.
The exhibition 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 and features artists Jack Black, Skount Garcia, Ashley Johnson and Alicia Piller.
