Frank Bowling & Virginia Jaramillo | Soul of a Nation: Art in the Age of Black Power | de Young Museum, San Francisco

September 11, 2019

Hales is excited to announce the inclusion of Frank Bowling & Virginia Jaramillo in the touring exhibition Soul of a Nation: Art in the Age of Black Power, at the de Young Museum, San Francisco.

 

This November, the de Young Museum welcomes the internationally acclaimed exhibition, Soul of a Nation: Art in the Age of Black Power, 1963–1983, organized by the Tate Modern in London. This powerful and provocative presentation focuses on art made in the pivotal decades between 1963 and 1983, when issues of race and identity dominated and defined both public and private discourse. Rarely has an historical exhibition proved to be so timely—and to provoke so much meaningful discussion among its numerous viewers.

 

The works in Soul of a Nation were forged in a crucible of institutionalized racism and codified prejudice that had pervaded the entire American nation for centuries. Galvanized to take action, and inspired by the Civil Rights struggle for equality and justice, African American artists determined to use art and culture as catalysts for self-definition, self-empowerment, and self-determination.
