West African Masquerade   Photographs by Phyllis Galembo inspiration

Reflecting the ritual adornment and spirituality of masquerades in Nigeria, Benin and Burkina Faso in West Africa, these portraits build on Galembo’s work of the past twenty years photographing the rituals and religious culture in Nigeria, Brazil, Cuba, Jamaica and Haiti, as well as the homegrown custom of Halloween in the United States. Organized by Ian Berry, Malloy Curator of The Tang Museum, in collaboration with the artist. See more at The Tang Museum
