‘No Colour Bar: Black British Art in Action 1960-1990’

The story of 20th century Black British cultural heritage, social and political history is to be celebrated at a new, free and interactive exhibition entitled ‘No Colour Bar: Black British Art in Action 1960-1990’ which opens to the public on Friday 10th July 2015 at the Guildhall Art Gallery, provided by the City of London Corporation.  

The exhibition takes its impetus from the life works of pioneering Black civil rights campaigners Eric and Jessica Huntley and will also showcase a number of prominent Black artists from the same era, including Eddie Chambers, Sonia Boyce and Denzil Forrester. At the heart of the exhibition will be a multi-sensory, interactive recreation of the Huntley’s ‘Walter Rodney Bookshop’ in West London which became a focal point for Black artists, writers and activists as they carved out their cultural space in Britain.
