This month Uniqlo Tate Lates celebrates ‘Soul of a Nation: Art in the Age of Black Power’, a show dubbed one of the ‘must-see art shows of the year’ by NME. The exhibition shines a bright light on the vital contribution of Black artists to a dramatic period in American art and history, starting from 1963 at the height of the Civil Rights movement. ✊🏾

Lineup

Music & Visuals Programmed By NTS Radio
See Farai, Lala &ce and James Massiah live, with DJ sets from Bonaventure and Cktrl in the Turbine Hall. Plus see DJ sets from Nonsense, Minimal Effort and Senay in the Terrace Bar until 23.00.

Film Display
Drop in for a free display of four short films commissioned by Tate with support of the Ford Foundation for Soul of a Nation: Art in the Age of Black Power. Films include ‘Black Mary’ By Kahlil Joseph, ‘Meeting Lorraine’ by Zawe Ashton, ‘The Ancestors Came’ by Cecile Emeke and ‘William T. Williams – A Diamond In A Box’ by Andy Mundy Castle.

Screening
Sampha: Process
Catch an exclusive screening of Process at 21.00 in the Starr Cinema. Process is a companion film to the debut album of singer-songwriter Sampha, directed by Kahlil Joseph, the visual storyteller behind Beyoncé’s Lemonade.

Sampha: Shy Light
Alongside the screening of Process, we launch Shy Light, a new zine by Sampha, created in collaboration with designer Grace Wales Bonner, art director Jamie Andrew Reid, and LA photographic duo Durimel.

Drawing Black Superheroes
Develop your own Black superheroes with character designer Wayne ‘Hard-Wired’ Riley. Take inspiration from historical figures, and learn how to design superhero characters using comic drawing techniques.

From a Creative Case to an Ecology of Care
What does the term ‘diversity’ mean? Join the debate led by The Ecology of Care team and generate a rolling document problematizing its definition. Interrogate policy and have your words amplified and made into badges.

Writing Black Power
Words were a powerful tool in the Black Power movement, from the poetry of Amiri Baraka to the speeches of Malcolm X. Explore the spoken word of the struggle at Bridget Minamore’s drop-in writing session, and hear pop-up readings throughout the evening.

Keeping It Real
Inspired by Black funk, soul and disco album sleeves, create your own album cover with artists Harold Offeh and Eloise Calandre, and watch your work projected live.

Uniqlo 10 Minute Art Talks
Staff and volunteers from across Tate share their personal insights into works from the collection.

Collection Conversation
Got an opinion about the art in Tate Modern? Visitor experience teams will lead three lively rounds of conversation around key artworks.
