Summary
"African masks changed the face of modern art in the early twentieth century. Today, a century later, young artists are again looking at masks in museums for inspiration. In this era of innovation, when digital culture is upending our visual framework, artists are reinventing form in an ever-expanding choice of mediums. With Disguise: Masks and Global African Art, the Seattle Art Museum's renowned collection of masks has become a catalyst for artists, encouraging them to present fresh visions of masquerade and of the shared instinct to hide from ourselves and from each other"-- Provided by publisher.
