Our radio show on contemporary black portraiture explores The Dandy Lion Project, a traveling exhibition featuring contemporary portraits by emerging photographers and filmmakers from around the African Diaspora. You’ll hear our 2012 episode with Amy Sherald on Black Art and New Racial Narratives, recorded with a live audience at moniquemeloche gallery in Chicago. In the studio with us, project founder and curator Shantrelle Patrice Lewis and visual artist Kia Dyson talk about the Dandy Lion exhibition now on view at the Lowe Museum, Miami. Calling in from Atlanta, artist and scholar Fahamu Pecou joins our conversation.
