As the 2017 BlackStar Film Festival comes to an end, join us for the closing reception in collaboration with ICA’s ongoing Gather series, as we celebrate the launch of author Shantrelle P. Lewis’ new book, Dandy Lion: The Black Dandy and Street Style. To showcase the style of Black dandies—men of African descent who use fashion to define and inhabit a proud, radically independent public persona—we will be screening three short films:

• “Black Beau” by Terence Nance
• “Sir” by Numa Perrier
• “This is Not a Suit” by Adrien Sauvage

There will also be a panel discussion, a book signing and sales, and a DJ. We hope you will join BlackStar for one final celebration of film and art!

This event is free and open to the public; register here. Fine attire is recommended.
