Event description
This internationally acclaimed exhibition, organized by Tate Modern, celebrates art made by Black artists during two pivotal decades when issues of race and identity dominated and defined both public and private discourse. The de Young’s presentation includes a focus on Bay Area artists whose work promoted personal and cultural pride, collective solidarity and empowerment, and political and social activism.
Honoring the incredible legacy of Black Power in the San Francisco Bay Area, the de Young museum is hosting a line-up of programming and partners tied to celebrating this landmark exhibition. Featuring renowned artists, performers, musicians, activists, civic leaders, and others, these programs welcome special guests from around the Bay Area to bring Black Power to the forefront.
This private tour will begin before museum opening hours. We meet at 8:45AM. It will be led by Shira Barnett, a Jungian analyst and de Young docent, who brings an analytic psychology perspective to her interpretation of the works and lives of the artists.
Space is limited. Register soon!
No Continuing Education Credits are available for this event.
This event is offered by The Friends of the Institute and ARAS, The Archive for Research in Archetypal Symbolism
