Phyllis Galembo: MASKÉ

Through Sunday, September 20
Boca Raton Museum of Art

For over two decades Phyllis Galembo has documented cultural and religious traditions in Africa and among the African Diaspora with striking large-scale color photographs. Her subjects are the participants in contemporary African ceremonies celebrating mythic characters in masks and costumes. Whether they are humorous or frightening, her portraits capture the transformative power of masquerades. This exhibition will be installed on the museum’s second floor in close proximity to its African collection, which includes many masks.
