Latin America Unmasked

May 26, 2011 to June 05, 2011The Harfang gallery in the Weedon cultural center

From the collection og the Quebec Museum of Civilization and other private collections

American Indian masks, carnival masks, wrestlers masks… the universe of the mask in Latin America is so rich and varied that we are witnesses to their diverse and often misunderstood social and cultural applications. Imagine being in front of a mask that is full of Amazonian feathers or the violently colored fighting masks of the Lucha; where these characters are elevated to national hero status.

Official opening: Friday May 20th at 5pm
