Described as “your Summer 2013 pilgrimage” by GQ, the Artist/Rebel/Dandy: Men of Fashion is the ultimate exhibition you really need to attend this season.
As the title itself states, this exhibition doesn’t want to define the very debated and poliedric figure of the dandy, on the contrary it rather explores the wide range of the figures, personas and styles that this category consists of.
The RISD Museum in Providence is therefore presenting a wide variety of artistic manifestations regarding this subject, both from the past and from more recent days, ranging from old caricatures, to the pictures of John Waters or Stephen Tennant, from the legendary Andy Warhol’s silver wigs, to the possibly last remaining shirt owned by Oscar Wilde himself, from a great collection of tailored-to-perfection garments to the pictures of Waris Ahluwalia or Patrick McDonald in their whimsical suits, and the list goes on.
With the contribution of other organizations from all over the world and the donations of private individuals, this exhibition manages to deeply explore the dynamic, ever-changing figure of the dandy and the result is not just a frivolous depiction of dandyism but it’s culturally relevant and highly “erudite and charming” (Style.com).

Dandy is the title of the exhibition that explores how the modern day “dandy” may look…
The exhibition, at Nordiska Museet, Stockholm explores the Dandy of these days, starting from the Oscar Wilde’s vision who epitomised the term “dandy”, an 18th-century term for a man for whom sartorial elegance was fundamental.
But who is the modern “Dandy”? The answer comes from the exhibition at Stockholm’s Nordic Museum that seeks to determine who or what the modern day dandy is.
The elegant exhibition architecture is courtesy of the ever-wonderful Form Us With Love, with dismembered mannequins, fused with MDF boxes, giving the appearance of a stonemason having started work on sculptures but only finishing the sections necessary for the exhibition.
