Daniele Tamagni. Another Look

On the occasion of Altaroma fashion week 2017, Galleria del Cembalo presents for the first time in Rome Daniele Tamagni's body of work on Contemporary African street fashion and urban subcultures.

The exhibition, titled Another Look and curated by Giovanna Fazzuoli, illustrates street fashion as a means of expressing one’s identity and social and political claims by a rich selection of images from the series Gentlemen of Bacongo, Joburg Style Battles, Driankè Diskette Dakar St Louis and Afrometals.

From the Congolese dandys of Brazzaville to the metal cowboys of Gabrone, the young Johannesburg dancers, and the creatives of Nairobi and Dakar, Tamagni has captured the immediacy and spontaneity of these fashion tribes from various countries in Africa. But in this way Tamagni has also portrayed phenomena of eccentric resistance and political claim trough fashion. The identity of these fashion tribes is represented in different contexts in which a deeply rooted popular subculture is born, one that at once snubs its nose at colonial and Western culture while drawing from a great well of creativity.

Between globalization and tradition, desire for emulation and social affirmation, spontaneity and artifice, individual creativity and reinterpretation, the fashion tribes claim their identity in the everyday reality, one that Tamagni was able to see from a different perspective, challenging all stereotypes.
