Film Screening: Black Dandy says
Screening followed by a Q&A with Shantrelle P. Lewis, curator of "Dandy Lion: (Re)articulating Black Masculine Identity" at Silver Eye Center for Photography.

"Black Dandy," a film by Laurent Lunetta and Ariel Wizman, recounts the history of a new silhouette of young black men; his origins in slavery's cotton fields to the well connected stars of today. A history in which an obsession for beautiful clothing comes together with searching for dignity and the art of protesting with style.

Black Dandyism is a major trend since the beginning of the 2010s. Designers mix European canons with African culture, mastering the codes of vintage and street wear, in order to create inspired looks: they are black dandies.

Presented in partnership with Silver Eye Center for Photography.
