Moon Dancers: Yup’ik Masks and the Surrealists

Surrealist artists and writers were fascinated and inspired by Yup’ik dance masks from the central Alaskan coast, which they avidly collected during their period of exile in New York City during World War II. This spring, Di Donna Galleries and Donald Ellis Gallery will jointly present an exhibition exploring the rich historical, visual, and ideological connections between Yup’ik masks and Surrealism. A full color publication with scholarly essays will accompany the exhibition.

Location: Di Donna Galleries, 744 Madison Ave, 3rd Floor, New York (between 64th and 65th Streets)

Exhibition dates: April 27 - June 29, 2018
