About

Manifest Destiny is excited to announce the special exhibition & international Group Show: The Masks We Wear

Masks.

Physical, metaphysical, metaphorical.

Happy. Sad. Mad.

Self-aggrandizing, self-deprecating, self-concealing.

Branding. Marketing. Selling.

Social. Social. Social.

Once defined by culture, theater, and local decorum — Japanese theater masks, African war tribal masks, Venetian Carnival masks — the masks of today are no longer hindered by time and place. As media spreads its tentacles, the line between unmasked and masked realities is increasingly blurred.

Art has always grappled with the masking and unmasking of the truth — figuratively and otherwise. Some may say, that this is a core value of art — to use image and light to reveal what is behind a mask. Or perhaps it’s to glorify the mask and help us forget the ugliness that it covers. It is in this interplay and testing of surfaces, that we can occasionally touch a sublime truth that reminds us of humanity’s worthiness. It is art that — when all else fails — has the ability to make the real relevant.

Join us as we unveil a private collection of masks from around the world and see the following artists address the theme: The Masks We Wear
