Dandy Lion Roars will present an afternoon of songs celebrating exhibition Dandy Lion: (Re)Articulating Black Masculine Identity. This performance features acclaimed baritones and pianist, and will showcase classical art song and spirituals by African American composers and poets.
Exhibition Dandy Lion (on view through May 21, 2017) seeks to distinguish the historical and contemporary expressions of the Black Dandy phenomenon in popular culture. The first comprehensive exhibition of its kind, this project highlights young men in city-landscapes who defy stereotypical and monolithic understandings of Black masculinity by remixing Victorian-era fashion with traditional African sartorial sensibilities.
