Disguise: Masks and Global African Art

Disguise: Masks and Global African Art connects the work of twenty-five contemporary artists with historical African 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 Brooklyn Museum is closed Mondays and Tuesdays.

The Museum operated on a ticketed suggested donation basis.
