Short films from the Tate's Art in the Age of Black Power @ St Paul's School | England | United Kingdom

A series of beautifully powerful films made by exciting young Black directors about African American artists from this time. For instance, Zawe Ashton directs a film profiling Lorraine O’ Grady an artist whose installations, performances and texts address issues black female subjectivity.  Cecile Emeke is profiling artist and author Faith Ringgold whose paintings and quilted narrative pieces show the racial, political and social tensions she experienced as an artist working in Harlem in the 60s and 70s and Andy Mundy-Castle directs a film profiling painter William T. Williams whose work spans five decade. Finally there will be a fourth film directed by esteemed director Kahlil Joseph (known for working with Beyoncé, Sampha, FKA Twigs and many more) who will be focussing on the works of renowned fine art photographer, Roy DeCarava, who was known for documenting lives of African Americans and jazz artists in Harlem. Collectively the films will elegantly portray the lives and works of these incredible artists.
