MFA for Educators

Engage your students with the collections of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, to illustrate themes and concepts in any discipline.

Borrowing and Masquerading

Borrowing and Masquerading looks at a selection of artists in the MFA Boston's collection that either repurpose existing images and works of art to create new works of art, or use costume and disguise to masquerade as a different person in their works of art. Some may practice a combination of these two approaches.

The artists call into question the idea of the authenticity, authorship, identity, and subject.
