"Disguise: Masks and Global African Art" connects the work of twenty-five contemporary artists with historical masquerade, using play and provocation to invite viewers to think critically about their world and their place within it. By putting on a mask and becoming someone else, artists reveal hidden realities about society, including those of power, class, and gender, to suggest possibilities for the future. The exhibition presents contemporary work in dialogue with historical objects from the collections of the Seattle Art Museum and the Brooklyn Museum within an immersion and lively installation of video, digital, sound, and installation art, as well as photography and sculpture.
