Thu, November 7, 2019 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

Join Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco docent Alfred Escoffier for a look at this new exhibit at the de Young Museum. Organized by the Tate Modern, London, Soul of a Nation: Art in the Age of Black Power, 1963–1983, is a powerful and provocative presentation focusing on art made in the pivotal decades between 1963 and 1983, The works were forged in a crucible of institutionalized racism and codified prejudice that has pervaded America for centuries. Inspired by the Civil Rights struggle for equality and justice, these African American artists use art and culture as catalysts for self-definition, self-empowerment, and self-determination. The artists are from across the US and work in multiple media. A special group of Bay Area artists are included for the FAMSF show. Works include: paintings, drawings, prints, photographs, collages, assemblages, and custom clothing, which contributed to promoting the personal and cultural pride of the Black Power movement.
