Soul of a Nation: Art in the Age of Black Power (14 September 2018–3 February 2019) shines light on a broad spectrum of Black artistic practice from 1963 to 1983, one of the most politically, socially, and aesthetically revolutionary periods in American history. Black artists across the country worked in communities, in collectives, and individually to create a range of art responsive to the moment – including figurative and abstract painting, prints, and photography; assemblage and sculpture; and performance.
This exhibition brings together for the first time the excitingly disparate practices of more than sixty Black artists from this important moment, offering an unparalleled opportunity to see their extraordinary works side by side.
