Artist Talk by Phyllis Galembo Masquerade from Africa to the Americas

“For over two decades, Phyllis Galembo has documented cultural and religious traditions in Africa and the African Diaspora. Travelling widely throughout western and central Africa, and regularly to Haiti, her subjects are participants in masquerade events – traditional African ceremonies– who use costume, body paint and masks to create mythic characters.

Galembo was born in New York and lives in New York City.  She has been a professor in the Fine Arts Department of SUNY Albany since 1978. Galembo has produced several publications, including the monograph MASKE in the fall of 2010.”
