SOUL OF A NATION: ART IN THE AGE OF BLACK POWER at London's Tate Modern Gallery

Tate Modern Bankside, London, presents a pivotal and powerful exhibition: SOUL OF A NATION: ART IN THE AGE OF BLACK POWER. Highlighting the vital contribution of Black artists and artworks during a dramatic period in American art and history, the exhibition begins in 1963 at the height of the Civil Rights movement and its dreams of integration. When Black Power emerged as a rallying cry for African American pride, autonomy and solidarity, artists equally responded to these times by provoking, confronting, and confounding expectations.

Vibrant paintings, powerful murals, collage, photography, revolutionary clothing designs and sculptures made with Black hair, melted records, and tights. Some engage with legendary figures from the period, with paintings in homage to political leaders Martin Luther King, Malcolm X and Angela Davis, musician John Coltrane and sporting hero Jack Johnson. Muhammad Ali appears in Andy Warhol’s famous painting.  

This landmark exhibition is a rare opportunity to see era-defining artworks that changed the face of art in America. (Text: Tate Modern)
