The Beaney — How to get here
From Japanese Noh masks, used in theatre to identify characters, to modern-day Instagram filters, this exhibition explores the relationship between revealing and concealing the self through masks, prints, paintings, film, and interactive filters.
Throughout history, masks have been used for both purposes: some protect and hide us while others reveal our innermost world. Masks also bring attention to the causes we stand for and aid in the traditions we follow.
Unveiled explores the use of masks and facial distortion as a means of personal expression in identity, activism, and ceremonial traditions.
In collaboration with The Beaney for the first time, Unveiled is curated by the University of Kent MA Curating programme.
Admission is free, donations encourage
The exhibition will run from Saturday 2 July to Sunday 31 July (Closed Mondays).
Location: Second Floor, Special Exhibition Gallery, The Beaney
