Hammonds House Museum kicks off the 2019 season with Dandy Lion: (Re) Articulating Black Masculine Identity. Dandy Lion is a photography exhibition curated by Shantrelle P. Lewis which highlights the contemporary expressions of the Black Dandy phenomenon in popular culture. The first comprehensive exhibition of its kind, Dandy Lion highlights young men who defy stereotypical and monolithic understandings of Black masculinity by remixing Victorian-era fashion with traditional African sartorial sensibilities. Using their self-fashioned bodies as sites of resistance, contemporary Black dandies are complicating modern narratives of what it means to be Black, masculine and fashionable in the 21st century.

On view at Hammonds House Museum January 18-April 28, 2019. Organized by Museum of Contemporary Photography at Columbia College Chicago. Admission is free for members. $7.00 for non-members.
