Description

Dandy Lion: (Re) Articulating Black Masculine Identity, the popular photography exhibition at Hammonds House Museum, has been extended through May. Curated by Shantrelle P. Lewis and organized by the Museum of Contemporary Photography, the exhibit 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.
