Art Talk - Soul of a Nation: Art in the Age of Black Power 1963–1983
This Art Talk brings the de Young museum's exhibit Soul of a Nation: Art in the Age of Black Power 1963–1983 to you!
The internationally acclaimed exhibition, organized by Tate Modern, celebrates art made by Black artists during two pivotal decades when issues of race and identity dominated and defined both public and private discourse.
The de Young’s exhibit includes a focus on Bay Area artists whose work promoted personal and cultural pride, collective solidarity and empowerment, and political and social activism.
This multi-media presentation will delve into highlights of the show.
You can visit the exhibit at the de Young for free on January 11 and February 8.
