Making Visual the Music of Ismael Rivera | Photographs by Christopher Lopez
S.A.P.E. Societe des Ambianceurs et des Personnes Elegantes /Society of Tastemakers and Elegant People | Photographs by Héctor Mediavilla
October 19 - December 15, 2017

Two concurrent exhibitions of photographs will be shown in conjunction with the Holy Cross Conference Rethinking the Afropolitan: The Ethics of Black Atlantic Masculinities on Display, organized by Associate Professors Rosa Carrasquillo and Lorelle Semley of the History Department. The exhibitions are curated by Roger Hankins, director of the Cantor Art Gallery, and include work from New York-based photographer Christopher Lopezs Visualizing the Music of Ismael Rivera series, images that were taken on location in Puerto Rico and inspired by the music of one of the islands most beloved musicians of the 20th century, Ismael Rivera. Spanish photographer Hector Mediavillas photographs capture the fascinating world of Congolese men known as Sapeurs, who have since the early part of the 20th century used dress and performance to engage and counter the realities of political and economic hardship in postcolonial Africa.
