Today, you only need to look as far as Snapchat to recognize the ease – and appeal – of putting on a disguise, but mask-wearing goes back thousands of years and can be found in almost every culture around the world. This exhibition asks the question – “what do masks mean in the 21st century?” – and displays the multimedia responses of 26 underground artists from seven different Asian countries. The exhibition is curated by the Singaporean art collective Kult, which has been promoting contemporary art and artists around Asia for nearly a decade.
How much: Free
