Soul of a Na­tion: Art in the age of Black Power

History Revealed - - HERE & NOW HOW BRITAIN’S TREASURES -

Ends 22 Oc­to­ber, Tate Mod­ern, Lon­don www.bit.ly/2kvk4f5

Now a world-renowned gallery, Tate Mod­ern’s lat­est ex­hi­bi­tion show­cases the vi­tal work of artists and de­sign­ers dur­ing the Amer­i­can Civil Rights Move­ment. The ex­pe­ri­ences of black peo­ple in terms of op­pres­sion, sys­tem­atic racism and seg­re­ga­tion all in­form the mas­ter­pieces on show here, but the works ex­press an op­ti­mism for the revo­lu­tion­ary times in which they were pro­duced. High­lights in­clude sculp­tures made with Afro hair, in­spi­ra­tional mu­rals and pho­to­graphs, like this one of Muham­mad Ali ( right), by Andy Warhol.

The story of Amer­ica’s Civil Rights Move­ment is told through paint­ings, sculp­ture, pho­tog­ra­phy and fash­ion
