Dandy Lion: (Re) Articulating Black Masculine Identity, the photography exhibition at Hammonds House Museum is curated by Shantrelle P. Lewis and organized by the Museum of Contemporary Photography. It examines global black dandyism, men with a penchant for color and a taste for refined fashion. Black dandyism originated in England’s Age of Enlightenment slave culture and 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. Dandy Lion will be on display through May 31 at Hammonds House Museum, 503 Peeples Street SW, Atlanta, GA 30310.
*Note that hours are Wed-Fri from 10am-6pm and Sat-Sun from 1pm-5pm.
