Iké Udé

Iké Udé’s “Sartorial Anarchy #5″ (2012) is part of “Artist/Rebel/Dandy: Men of Fashion” at the Museum of Art Rhode Island School of Design.

Yesterday, The Museum of Art at RISD opened its latest exhibition Artist/Rebel/Dandy: Men of Fashion.  Featuring over 200 objects – including paintings, works on paper, and clothing – the exhibition is the first of its kind to focus on the persona and history of the distinctively dressed figure of the dandy.

Featured in the multi-faceted exhibition are 3 large pigment prints by Iké Udé, produced and framed at Laumont.  Udé’s vibrant photographs depict him as a modern dandy within interior settings.  The New York Times Style Magazine recently profiled the show, using one of Udé’s photographs as the featured image.

The exhibition will remain on view until August 18, 2013 at the RISD Museum in Rhode Island.  The museum’s press release contains more information regarding the exhibition’s themes, related events, and book signing.
