Becoming Another: The Power Of Masks

Rubin Museum of Art

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 collection of masks speaks to the human impulse to transform one’s identity.
