Thelma Golden In Conversation With David A Bailey - Tate Britain

Post-Black Art Now, took place at the Tate Britain Auditorium.
In the late 1990s curator and writer Thelma Golden coined the controversial term 'post-black art' with friend and artist Glenn Ligon to refer to a post-civil rights generation of African-American artists whose work she believed could no longer be defined in terms of 'race'. In this lecture and discussion, Golden reflects on the status of the term 'post-black art' in the context of debates about the globalisation of the art of the African diaspora and current notions of cultural difference.
