projects+gallery, a Saint Louis commercial art space designed to present multidisciplinary exhibitions, is pleased to announce the public opening of ‘amongst friends.’, a solo exhibition of photography by Dario Calmese and fashion from the personal collection of Lana Turner on February 16th, 2018.

Based in New York City, American artist Dario Calmese uses photography to tell stories about the people he has met, the places he has been and the histories he has encountered.

‘Amongst friends.’ is a series of black and white photographs styled by Calmese with selected fashion objects from the private collection of Lana Turner, a noted Harlem preservationist and doyenne of style whose extensive inventory of vintage fashion can be understood as an archive of twentieth-century society and a reflection of the role of fashion in the history of African-American culture.
