Framing Black Visual Art – Meet Eddie Chambers and Errol Lloyd




About: The Guildhall Art Gallery welcomes celebrated artist, art historian and author, Eddie Chambers for a special discussion and book signing on Monday 13th July 2015. Eddie Chambers will be joined by artist and award winning writer, Errol Lloyd for a Q&A session chaired by Tate Britain curator Sonya Dyer discussing the impact made by notable Black Artists in the late 20th Century, who have gone largely unnoticed in the British Art Arena.

Background: Eddie Chambers’ latest book, ‘Black Artists in British Art: A History Since the 1950’s’, which features many of the artists in the Guildhall Art Gallery’s six month long exhibition ‘No Colour Bar: Black British Art in Action 1960-1990’, identifies and highlights some of the major Black artists of the period.  This book represents a timely and important contribution to British art history and the exhibition is a live, visual representation of what has already become a seminal text.  Eddie Chambers will be signing copies of his book ‘Black Artists in British Art: A History since the 1950s’ following the Q&A session and it will be available to purchase on the night.

Exhibition: ‘No Colour Bar: Black British Art in Action at the Guildhall Art Gallery: Throughout its tenure, ‘No Colour Bar: Black British Art in Action 1960-1990’, will play host to a series of scheduled events enriching the visitor experience through a diverse range of performances, film talks, workshops and gallery tours. Framing Black Visual Art is the first of a programme of events setting the tone for a dynamic and informative insight into how the art scene bypassed Black artists during this period.
