THE OTHER FACE was based upon Mingei International’s permanent collection of Balinese dance masks and textiles, donated by Edward Inskeep. These objects were supplemented by loans of Indonesian tribal art from other museums and private collectors. The exhibition included many facets of Indonesian art, including shadow puppets, wood sculpture, textiles, jewelry, beads and adornments.
