Looking for Langston in Fashioning Masculinities: The Art of Menswear

19 March - 6 November 2022

Photography from Isaac Julien's Looking for Langston series, culled from his 1989 film of the same name - a reflection on the life and times of African-American poet Langston Hughes - is presented alongside print, paint, sculpture and film works compromising 100 years of men's fashion at the Victoria & Albert Museum's Fashioning Masculinities: The Art of Menswear.
