Exhibition: October 13th-31st.

The term masquerade has its roots in the French word ‘mascarade’ and the Italian word ‘maschera.’ From the 14th century onwards, masquerade balls were part of Europe’s carnival season. Yet, it was the advent of the Venetian carnavale, when elaborate costumes and white face paint were used to conceal identities giving participants free license to engage in questionable or scandalous behaviours, that brought worldwide popularity. Why is it that people often experience a great sense of freedom when they are disguised? Gallery 23 is pleased to invite you to exhibition featuring Halloween or Samhain inspired artworks, masks, and costumes. Please join us for our opening featuring performance art. Free + a complimentary drink

In conjunction with our Masquerade exhibition, Gallery 23 Film Sessions will also host an Asian Horror Film lecture and screening of 'Ringu' The original 'Ring' (1998) that revolutionised horror cinema.
