My visit to Soul of a Nation: Art in the Age of Black Power at the Tate Modern Museum in London can be summed up with one word: “Exciting”. Seeing all the modern masters in a show together in a foreign country was wonderful. In addition, many of the artists were in attendance at the opening reception. That made the visit even better with the opportunity to hear first hand the artists’ personal thoughts and comments on their work.
My compliments to the Tate Modern and their curatorial staff for putting together this great show. In the words of Thelma Golden, “It is sure to be a profoundly valuable resource… for decades to come.” We are blessed by the fact the the show will come to our American museums: Crystal Bridges and the Brooklyn Museum in 2018.
Aaron Galleries was represented by the Cliff Joseph painting, The Blackboard. It was a thrill to see it prominently displayed at the Tate Modern.
