Chicago-based artist Brendan Fernandes draws inspiration from the fabricated African masks that were once sold to tourists, exploring how traditional art was modified and commodified. Displayed alongside wooden masks from Burkina Faso, Congo, Cameroon, and Nigeria from DePaul Art Museum’s African collection, Fernandes's striking neon light masks examine the ways in which society claims ownership of artistic ideas.
