The RISD Museum Associates celebrated the opening of the Museum’s major spring exhibition, Artist/Rebel/Dandy: Men of Fashion. Fashion legend André Leon Talley, contributing editor of Vogue magazine and creative director of Numero Russia, hosted the gala event at the Museum and delighted guests with his interpretations of ‘The Dandy.’ Patrons enjoyed cocktails and an exclusive preview of the exhibition followed by dinner and dancing. In Artist/Rebel/Dandy, a groundbreaking celebration of the dandy, the RISD Museum emphasizes the personalities of well-known fashionable men, focusing on the enduring bond between identity, creativity, and self-presentation. The dandy is revealed as an artistic, rebellious figure who employs profound thought and imagination in his sartorial and personal presentation, forging a unique path to self-discovery and self expression.
