Evolution: Torres Strait Masks

The Evolution: Torres Strait Masks exhibition takes visitors on a journey from time immemorial when masks were used in ceremonial rituals involving art, theatre and dance and shows how these historic artefacts have inspired new works that are constantly developing and changing. Developed by the Gab Titui Cultural Centre on Waiben (Thursday Island) this exhibition celebrates the rich and continuing tradition of mask making in Zenadh Kes (Torres Strait) and explores the longstanding importance of ceremonial masks in Torres Strait culture, and how they influence contemporary art forms. The 12 striking masks are created by contemporary Torres Strait artists – Andrew Passi, Eddie Nona, Vincent Babia, Kapua Gutchen Senior, Yessie Mosby, Alick Tipoti, Milton Savage and Seriat Young. A travelling exhibition from the National Museum of Australia.
