Power Dressing: Men's Fashion and Prestige in Africa

The exhibition brings together fifty examples of spectacular male attire spanning the continent from Morocco to South Africa and representing over a century of fashion. 

Rather than presenting a geographic or chronological survey, the exhibition explores the artistry of men's dress as it relates to and embodies social, political, and spiritual power. The exhibition highlights four broad and intersecting themes that offer rich insights into the meanings of men's fashions within Africa's diverse and ever-changing cultural and political landscape. The works are drawn primarily from The Newark Museum's own holdings as well as significant examples from private and public collections. A 40-page catalogue with full-color images and an essay by Christa Clarke, the exhibition's curator, is published in conjunction with the exhibition. 

Following its presentation in Newark, the exhibition travels to the Parrish Art Museum in Southampton, NY and is available for presentation at two other venues. 

Among the highlights of the public programs accompanying the exhibition in Newark are:

Lecture Series: "Passion for African Fashion," with Andrew Bolton, Costume Institute, The Metropolitan Museum (Oct. 27) and designer Mary McFadden (Dec. 1). 

Symposium (Nov. 6): "Perspectives on African Dress," with Babatunde Lawal, Vicki Rovine and Gary van Wyk

AfroPop Dance Party: hosted by DJ Kola Osakue (Nov. 4)
