👨🎨 Masked Artists’ Talk
Come join us for an Artists’ Talk for the new exhibition on display at the 3 Dots Gallery: Masked | Emily Steinberg, Michael Green, Bill Doan
Masking is a complex act with as many histories as there are cultures. Mask traditions cover the gamut of human belief systems and practices from the mystical to the practical and from the political to the personal. COVID-19 has created yet another complex series of masking practices that vary across the globe.
Each artist has their own distinct response to “masking,” while sharing a common approach: combining images and text in the tradition of Graphic Medicine and Visual Narratives to make what are broadly called “comics.” Masked reflects the outcomes of their collaboration and the process (which involved many Zoom meetings and conversations) to help them build solidarity despite working alone.
