Some exhibitions can’t get any closer to some burning topics we hear on the news everyday.
The Color Line, African-American artists and segregation, at the Musée du Quai Branly, is an exhibition on the history of Afro-American art since 1865, from October 4th, 2016 until January 15th, 2017.
Although the end of the Civil War in 1865 brought an end to slavery, the racial demarcation line continued to have a lasting impact on American society.
What role did art play in the quest for equality and the affirmation of black identity in segregated America? The exhibition pays tribute to the African-American artists and thinkers who contributed, during a century and a half-long struggle, to blurring this discriminatory “colour line”.
