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