Who, What, Wear @ Studio Museum in Harlem

When Samuel Fosso set up his camera in 1976 to capture this self-portrait (left), his intent was to stage himself as part of a cosmopolitan pop culture—essentially the same goal of nearly every social media user today who ever dresses up and points a camera phone at a mirror or holds it at arm's length. As part of the Studio Museum in Harlem exhibition Who, What, Wear: Selections from the Permanent Collection, the photograph helps to tell a larger story of how style, self-expression, and the mirror of society have evolved over time. If you'll be in the New York area before August 12, 2012, it's well worth the visit. Also in the show: Hurvin Anderson's exquisite Mrs. S. Keita – Turquoise (right).
