Kunsthal KAdE in Amersfoort presents the visual richness of black culture through the works of 50 African American artists. Tell Me Your Story shows 140 works – mainly on loan from the United States (until August 30th). The exhibition was prolonged after it temporarily closed due to the coronavirus.
The exhibition focuses on five chronological periods: the Harlem Renaissance, Post Harlem Renaissance, Civil Rights, Black Renaissance and the Bloom Generation. The artists in each of these distinct periods shared one common characteristic: the need to express themselves and safeguard the vital African tradition of storytelling.
