A special exhibition, "Masquerades," opens Saturday, Oct. 13, atthe University of Virginia Art Museum and runs through Sunday, Dec. 23.

The exhibition complements the 2001 Virginia Film Festival theme — Masquerades — which examines characters whose identities are performances. They include con artists and tricksters, imposters and impersonators, race and gender benders, actors and other role players. The museum has created a post-modern assemblage that fits the theme, while giving visitors the opportunity to view some seldom-seen works from its permanent collection.

Selections include paintings by Lowell Nesbitt and G.C. Robinson, and photographs by William Klein, David Levinthal, Cindy Sherman, Man Ray, and the team of Patrick Nagatani and Andrée Tracey. Among the prints and drawings in the exhibition are works by Pat Steir, Pablo Picasso, Manon Cleary, and Francisco Goya. Also included in the exhibition will be selected works by Lynn Hershman, a featured artist of the 14th Virginia Film Festival.
