    The African mask has appeared in various forms and has been adapted in countless ways in Western art as a typification of ceremonial masquerade. In the 2016 Brooklyn Museum exhibition titled Disguise: Masks and Global African Art, twenty-five contemporary artists attempted to bridge the gap between mask and masquerade by both historically contextualizing and re-creating the part that the African mask and masquerade play today.

    Throughout the process of creating my mask, I became aware of who I am. I learned that I am more than what people see on the surface.
