Hector Mediavilla: S.A.P.E.

Wednesday May 15
Whether they’re called dandies, fops or, in the Congo, “sapeurs,” it’s undeniable that people who dress with conspicuous panache provide eye candy for everyone in their sartorial and social orbits. Spanish documentary photographer Hector Mediavilla traveled to the Republic of Congo to document exemplars of the country’s “sapeur” style. These dressers-to-the-nines model themselves after Congolese citizens who visited Paris in the 1920s and returned home with a distinct Parisian flair. Mediavilla’s photo essay highlighting these men’s contemporary heirs gets to the heart of costume’s sometimes uneasy relationship with identity. Through June 2.
