BAM Visual Art presents four works by Senegalese photographer Omar Victor Diop. Studio of the Vanities is an ongoing series of elaborately staged portraits that capture the many and varied fresh faces of an emerging creative class in contemporary Africa. The portraits themselves reflect a kind of creative collaboration, in this case between sitter and photographer. The series is on display in the lobby of the Peter Jay Sharp Building for the duration of the DanceAfrica festival.

Due to unforeseen events, Artist Talk: Omar Victor Diop & Street Etiquette is cancelled. Please stop by the Peter Jay Sharp Building lobby to see the exhibit The Studio of Vanities.
