"William Villalongo (United States, b. 1975) discusses history, culture and art through his piece Muses (Artifact I) where he places African masks on 19th and 20th century European nudes recalling the appropriation of sacred, cultural objects by European painters. Villalongo is deeply concerned with how social and cultural histories are constantly cycling and being retold."
