Exhibition: Soul of a Nation: Art in the Age of Black Power

Soul of a Nation: Art in the Age of Black Power presents the work made by leading African American artists between 1963 and 1983. Bringing together more than 150 objects from private and public collections, the exhibition features paintings, collages, photographs, prints, and sculpture. The exhibition considers the different ways in which approximately fifty artists from across the US—including Norman Lewis (1909–1979), Romare Bearden (1911–1988), Elizabeth Catlett (1915–2012), Wadsworth Jarrell (b. 1929), Betye Saar (b. 1926), Faith Ringgold (b. 1930), John Outterbridge (b. 1933), and Sam Gilliam (b. 1933)—understood what it meant to be Black within their artistic practice.
