The Mask Project
The mask is everywhere. Blank and anonymous, it lingers as a constant reminder of the crisis we’re all facing.
A universal symbol of this unprecedented period, the mask is also a territory of expression, rich of a 7 000 years long history and various traditions.
To ornate, hide, heal, dance, play, seduce or hunt, from Japan to West Africa, from Argentina to Ireland, the mask is an endless source of beauty and knowledge.
It’s also a wonderful medium for artists to take over. That's why we created The Mask Project, an International curated competition, open to the public vote which gathered 12 Jurors, 700 participants, from 150 countries and more than 40 000 votes
We're very proud of this project and are pleased to feature here the 6 Winners and 20 finalists.
