"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."
"The audio tour accompanying the exhibit was created in collaboration with the Poetry Society of America. Selected poets from across the country created original poems in response to the objects on view."
