Art in the Age of Black Girl Magic

Part of WOW – Women of the World

Delve into the genesis of black feminism in art at a talk with Bolanle Tajudeen, founder of Black Blossoms.

Explore black women artists who make work addressing social, economical and political issues affecting their lives.

With Tajudeen’s guidance, uncover how these works can raise the conciseness of the black community.

During the session, find out about the ways in which black women artists have resisted and organised to make sure they are not ignored and forgotten in art history.

Black Blossoms is a platform dedicated to spotlighting black women and black non-binary visual artists.

This session is based on a lecture from Tajudeen’s acclaimed course Art in the Age of Black Girl Magic.

The course, currently taught at Tate, has received notable mentions in Vogue, Dazed and Black Ballad.
