Tell me your story

In the 1920s African-American writers, musicians and theatre-makers created a furore in Harlem (USA), which translated into the visual arts. Today the richness of black culture is experiencing a renaissance. The exhibition places contemporary artists in the context of their predecessors. The exhibition opened on 7 February in Kunsthal KAdE in Amersfoort and is currently not accessible. As soon as circumstances permit Tell Me Your Story extended until August 30. The images were made available by Kunsthal KAdE.
