Evolution: Torres Strait Islander Masks

Evolution: Torres Strait Masks presents a rich history of mask making in the Torres Strait. The exhibition highlights the significance of masks in Torres Strait Islander ceremonies and culture and their evolution to the present day through the commission works of eight artists from the Torres Strait and Northern Peninsula area.

Masks from Zenadh Kes are striking objects of deep ritual and historical significance. While rooted in ancient protocols and spirituality, masks and mask making are celebrated today as expressions of artistic and cultural revival. Evolution: Torres Strait Masks provides audiences with a special insight into a revived practice that was once unmatched by all cultures of the world as well as tools, techniques and materials such bones, tusks, feathers, shells, nuts, seeds and natural tree fiber.

Evolution: Torres Strait Masks was developed by the National Museum of Australia in partnership with the Gab Titui Cultural Centreand its parent body, the Torres Strait Regional Authority.
