Mapping Our Own Future
A weekly series of virtual exhibitions curated from our stockroom
When You Wear the Mask,
the Mask Becomes You

Online Solo Exhibition


This week’s virtual exhibition examines the use of face coverings from a functional as well as fanciful and speculative viewpoint. 'When You Wear the Mask, the Mask Becomes You' features work by Michael Camakaris, Nick Capaldo, Adrian Lazzaro, Julian Martin, Sammie-Jo Matta, Daniel Pace, Gavin Porter, Aidan Sefo, Cathy Staughton, Jimmy Tran and Terry Williams.

For those of us living in Melbourne, Australia the second lock down has made us admit that we’re not as immune or good as we thought we were while debates also proliferate whether to wear a face mask. Masks have been worn throughout history to shield, camouflage, disguise and masquerade and they can be creative, liberating and empowering. The exhibition hones in on this, reflecting the transformative qualities wearing a mask can have on the wearer.
