Soul of a Nation

de Young Museum

Celebrating the works that African American artists created during two pivotal decades in American history (1963–1983), the exhibition--organized by Tate Modern, London--examines the very purpose of art and the role of artists in society. Featuring more than 150 works by over 60 artists, the de Young museum presentation will uniquely include works closely connected to the San Francisco Bay Area.

This is what SF/Arts curator Christian L. Frock has to say about Soul of a Nation :

The roster for this spectacular survey of work by African American spans two pivotal decades, from 1963 to 1983. Though too lengthy to fully present here, a selection tells all: Romare Bearden, Dawoud Bey, Elizabeth Catlett, Roy DeCarava, Emory Douglas, David Hammons, Barkley L. Hendricks, Noah Purifoy, Martin Puryear, Faith Ringgold, Charles White. Organized by Tate Modern, London.
