Masks: The Art of Becoming

In June we present a group exhibition celebrating the power of masks and their makers.
“Masks were used to become someone, or something, to tell the stories and explain the histories of our rights and privileges,” says contemporary Ts’msyen artist David R. Boxley, perfectly capturing the importance of this evocative art.
Today, masks continue to be both forms for ceremony and active practice, as well as aesthetic expressions of artistic mastery. The masks in this exhibit reveal the diversity of mask-making practices from living cultures spanning a geographic distance from the Columbia River all the way north to Utqiaġvik, AK. They also provide a glimpse into the how each individual artist chooses to incorporate traditional or non-traditional materials and concepts into their practice.
