The Masks I Wear to Pass sheds light on the ways in which people conceal or reveal themselves in order to gain visibility, avoid marginalisation, and enjoy the privileges afforded to dominant groups. Ben Rak uses the print process as a metaphor for otherness, drawing parallels between art practice and social interaction.
The gallery is open and practicing COVID-19 social distancing measures.
