Soul of a Nation: Art in the Age of Black Power will open this Saturday, June 27, at the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston—the final venue of the acclaimed exhibition’s three-year international tour. Originally slated to open in Houston in April, the exhibition was delayed due to the pandemic lockdown at its previous venue in San Francisco, the de Young Museum.

Exploring what it meant to be a Black artist during the tumultuous era that spanned the 1960s to the early 1980s, the exhibition features works by more than 60 Black artists, with an added section on Houston’s vital Black art scene during this period featuring a number of works from the Museum’s collection. The exhibition will be accompanied by a roster of online programs, including films, artists conversations, and a discussion between Ford Foundation President Darren Walker, MFAH director Gary Tinterow, and Kanitra Fletcher, the MFAH curator of the exhibition. Soul of a Nation will be on view through Sunday, August 30.
