Dandy Lion: (Re) Articulating Black Masculine Identity
Photography exhibit, curated by Shantrelle P. Lewis and organized by the Museum of Contemporary Photography, which examines global black dandyism, men with a penchant for color and a taste for refined fashion. Black dandyism is not new; originating in England’s Age of Enlightenment slave culture, it has continued for generations in black cultures around the world. Now, set against the backdrop of hip-hop culture, the newest iteration of dandies is redefining what it means to be black, masculine, and fashionable.
There are a number of special events surrounding the Dandy Lion exhibit. Check the museum web site for details: https://www.hammondshouse.org/
