Nontsikelelo Veleko at Reginald F. Lewis Museum of Maryland African American History and Culture

In 2010, the exhibition 'The Global Africa Project' surveyed the rich pool of new talent emerging from the African continent and its influence on art, craft and design– including fashion—around the world. 'Global Dandy' is a selection of 13 photographs from 'The Global Africa Project', featuring works that explore cultural fusion as glimpsed through fashion, particularly through the self-styling of eclectic dandies and fashionistas across the globe. The vibrant images capture elements of dandy style in a global African context. As in the larger exhibition ('Dandy Lion: Articulating a Re(de)fined Black Masculine Identity') currently on at the museum, the works on view in 'Global Dandy' challenge conventional notions of a singular African aesthetic or identity. Featured photographers are Iké Udé, Daniele Tamagni and Nontsikelelo 'Lolo' Veleko.
