Art Chronicles : We Will Walk …

In We Will Walk – Art and Resistance in the American South, the current exhibition at Turner Contemporary, Margate, curators Hannah Collins and Paul Goodwin have brought together a fascinating collection of assemblages, paintings and quilts made during the 50s & 60s by African American artists from Alabama and surrounding states.

This selection of images gives some sense, I hope, of the vibrancy and invention on display.
