#SoulofaNation covers two decades, starting in #1963 . It was the year that #MartinLutherKing delivered his iconic speech, that #PresidentKennedy was assassinated, and that four schoolgirls were killed in a racially motivated bombing at the #16thStreetBaptistChurch in Birmingham, Alabama. The #civilrightsmovement was at its height and the voices of #blackresistance were growing louder. #Protests spilled out on to the streets in the form of #murals , #pamphlets , #posters , #marches and #music . But #blackartists began to ask themselves how they should respond. Should there be a #blackaesthetic ? Should they respond figuratively, as #FaithRinggold (b1930) did in #AmericanPeopleSeries #20 : Die (1967) – the US’s answer to #Guernica – where whites and blacks skirmish with guns and knives on the streets of New York. Or should artists exercise the #freedom to make whatever they damn well pleased, whether it addressed #race or not? #RomareBearden (1911-88), whose work is among that of more than 60 artists on display in this exhibition, had an answer: “Black art is the art that black artists do.” #Review by @el.spicer online now @studio.international
