Details:Despite the pressures of cataclysmic global change, masquerade remains one of the most impressive, prolific, and persistent aspects of African and diaspora artistic production today. Yet, few contemporary masquerades appear in museum galleries or collections. This exhibition examines one genre of masquerade known as egúngún and places a historic example created by a Yorùbá artist in the 1930s in conversation with two contemporary egúngúns by artists and communities in South Carolina and Georgia. Not only is masquerade a hypercontemporary art form but it is truly a global one. Egúngún means powers concealed and refers to both the masquerade itself and the embodiment of the supernatural power resident in ancestors. As returned ancestors they bridge the living with the spiritual world. Created with layers of sumptuous, paneled fabrics sourced locally and globally, egúngúns typically appear at annual festivals to honor the ancestors and seek blessings for the community. Since ancestors continue to guide and shape us in the present, we honor them when we remember the lessons they have taught us. In remembrance and recognition of education, teaching, and students, Powers Concealed features a newly commissioned ensemble called “Baba Eleko” and presented by Babatunde Akinsegun, alagba of egúngún at Oyotunji Village, South Carolina.
