Image of the Black in Tate Britain

Sunday 7 April

Two hour tour of Tate Britain to reveal the Black presence in the collection from the sixteenth century to the present day.

 

Tate Britain is the home of British art from 1500 to the present day where we see Black presence move from the object of economic capital to creators of cultural capital mirroring the changing position of Black folk in British society.

The cultural movement in Britain from the Enlightenment to Romanticism is tracked as seen in how British art focusing on its Black presence developed over that period including the response to slavery in the eighteenth century to feminist and gay art of the twentieth century.

If you want to understand the role of the Black presence in British art then this tour is for you.
