Beninese artist Romuald Hazoumè’s masks are narrative sculptures memorializing people, places, and moments. Composed mostly of plastic gasoline containers and other discarded materials, the masks are a voucher for reuse, resilience, and rebuilding.

Front Gallery

Leading up to fall 2026, the Mount Holyoke College Art Museum’s 150th anniversary, Museum staff will be working with the campus and community to imagine new methods of display. This full-scale rethink aims to broaden and deepen the stories we are able to share, raise the voices of marginalized communities, and unseat traditional Eurocentric and colonialist perspectives that have dominated museum practices for centuries.

Harriet L. and Paul M. Weissman Gallery

Leading up to our 150th anniversary in fall 2026, MHCAM staff are reimagining our permanent collection galleries. That begins with a fresh take on art from the 20th and 21st centuries. This installation features strengths of our permanent collection—primarily American and European art, with several works by international artists.

Gump Family Gallery

This single-work installation presents Silueta Sangrienta, a short film that opens with the artist lying nude, facing upward on the earth’s surface. Her body disappears to reveal a silhouette carved into the muddy surface below, which is then filled with a vibrant red liquid. The title of the film translates to “Bloody Silhouette” in Spanish.
