Artists reinvent the mask – in pictures

Art historian Geoffrey Shamos and Lauren Hartog, manager of the University of Denver’s Vicki Myhren Gallery, asked 45 artists making masks to participate in a topical show.

Shamos says choosing favourites is tough, but Trey Duvall ’s Incalculable Loss , made from hospital wristbands inscribed with names of those who have died from Covid complications “hits me every time ”, while Liz Sexton’s Porcupine Fish “makes visitors smile”.
