Di Donna has teamed up with Donald Ellis Gallery, experts in North American Indian art, to present this exhibition pairing Surrealist art with rare 20th-century Yup’ik masks from the central Alaskan coast, which were collected by the likes of André Breton, Enrico Donati, Robert Lebel, Matta, Kay Sage, and Isabelle Waldberg. The shows will illustrate how these masks inspired the Surrealists both in style and in subject matter, imbuing their works with the same mysticism as the native masks.

Location: Di Donna Gallery, 744 Madison Avenue
Price: Free
Time: Opening reception, 6 p.m.–8 p.m.; Tuesday–Friday,10 a.m.–6 p.m.; Saturday, 12 p.m.–6 p.m.
