Join us for an evening of film and conversation with André Leon Tally.
André Leon Tally has been a fixture in the world of fashion for so long that it’s difficult to imagine a time when he wasn’t defining the boundaries of great style. Kate Novack’s intimate portrait, The Gospel According to André takes viewers on an emotional journey from André’s roots growing up in the segregated Jim Crow South to become one of the most influential tastemakers and fashion curators of our times.
Here’s the teaser video:
Novack’s film draws fascinating, heretofore unexplored connections, between the elegance of André’s beloved grandmother and the Black Church of his youth and his later iconic, barrier-breaking work at publications like Women’s Wear Daily, W and Vogue. The Gospel According to André is a cinematic monument to one of the most unique figures of 20th Century American culture.
Following the film André Leon Tally will be in conversation with director Kate Novack and Tamron Hall.
Seating is limited.
This advance screening is presented in partnership with Magnolia Pictures and Maysles Documentary Center.
