Exhibition: March 2 - April 2, 2011
The complex layers of mystery, tradition,
transcendence, and spirituality are wrapped into masking. In a flash of
brilliant color Phyllis Galembo explores them all. Her images of
African and Caribbean rituals, rites, ceremonies, and festivals have
roots in portraiture and documentary photography. Perhaps more
important than photographic tradition is our curiosity in the history,
duality, and crucial functions these object play in the lives of the
people who ware them and the cultures who use them.
Explore the beauty and mystery of the images and the masking tradition.
