The DuSable Museum of African American History, 740 E. 56th Place, recently unveiled a new exhibit May 23. “EN MAS’: Carnival and Performance Art of the Caribbean” showcases the influences of Carnival on modern performance practices in the Caribbean, North American, and Europe.

The exhibit is a culmination of a series of nine performances that occurred during the 2014 Caribbean Carnival season across eight cities in six countries. The exhibit chronicles the connections between Carnival and performance, masquerade and social criticism, diaspora and transnationalism.

MAS is short for masquerade. EN MAS’ reflects the history of performance that does not take place on the stage but in the streets.

Artists for the project include John Beadle, Charles Campbell, Christophe Chassol, Nicolás Dumit Estévez, Marlon Griffith, Hew Locke, Lorraine O’Grady, Ebony G. Patterson, Cauleen Smith.

Claire Tancons and Krista Thompson curated the exhibit. The Contemporary Arts Center (CAC), New Orleans and Independent Curators International (ICI), New York organised it. The exhibition debuted at CAC New Orleans in spring of 2015 and will tour through 2018.

The exhibit will be available at DuSable through Aug. 13.

Museum hours are Tuesday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and on Sundays from noon to 5 p.m.
