Please join us for a private tour of Becoming Another: The Power of Masks at the Rubin Museum of Art. Guests will enjoy a guided tour with Dominique Townsend, the Rubin Museum’s Assistant Director of Interpretation and Engagement.
Becoming Another illuminates the common threads and distinct differences in mask traditions from Northern India, Nepal, Bhutan, Tibet, Mongolia, Siberia, Japan, and the North-West Coast tribes of North America. Featuring masks used in shamanistic practices, communal rituals, and theatrical performances, this exhibition speaks to the human impulse to transform one’s identity.
