“Soul of a Nation: Art in the Age of Black Power”
through Oct. 22
“Soul of a Nation: Art in the Age of Black Power,” a survey of work made by African American artists between 1963 and 1983, offers insight into these artists’ practices at a number of levels. Firstly, there are the social and political aspects of the art. Secondly, there are the aesthetic qualities of the paintings, collages, books, photographs and films on view. And thirdly, there is the interchange between the artists themselves. The show is installed in a way that brings these threads together beautifully, making the exhibition a joy to navigate.
