Xipe Projects is a non-profit educational foundation and is home to the
Peter and Roberta Markman Collection of Latin American Masks and Popular Art.
Xipe Projects opened its doors on November 11, 2011. Since then, we have hosted a wide variety of exhibitions, cultural events, and educational symposiums.
Xipe's Projects now houses approximately 4000 examples, many of which have been previously exhibited by museums, university, and commercial galleries. The Foundation serves to disseminate information about and stimulate interest in Latin American masking and popular art through:
- conducting and underwriting research that will be presented in publications, lectures and seminars.
- exhibitions of material drawn primarily, but not exclusively, from the Markmans' extensive collections.
- acquiring, conserving and publishing information about the masks, costumes, dance paraphernalia and popular art of various Latin American traditions.
