Erica Jones '02 Featured on KTLA News for Her Work at the Fowler Museum
Jones, curator of the "Disguise: Masks & Global African Art" exhibit, describes exciting new works by twelve contemporary artists
Erica Jones '02, a curator at the Fowler Museum at UCLA and art history instructor at Marlborough, was visited by KTLA news this week regarding the "Disguise: Masks & Global African Art" exhibit, open now until March 13, 2016. This dynamic exhibition considers the past, present, and future of disguise - a visual act that can be a mask, a costume, or simply a camouflage. Disguise features exciting new works by twelve contemporary artists from Africa and of African descent who explore the impulse of disguise with optical illusions, street actions, computer magic, and virtual reality. Together these works will engage visitors’ imaginations as they consider the art of masking as a transformative process – one that is informed by a multiplicity of influences, from historical African masquerade traditions to contemporary global culture and digital media.
