Originating at Tate Modern, the exhibition (9 November 2019–15 March 2020) offers a survey of diverse artistic responses to the most seismic years of Black social activism, 1963 to 1983.
The exhibition is divided into sections which address important artistic collectives, the rise of the Black Power movement, the greater social impact of the 1965 Watts Rebellion in Los Angeles, and the distinct expressions of the Black Power movement which coursed through artistic engagement with photography, abstraction, figuration, painting, sculpture, assemblage, textile arts, and poster design.
