No Colour Bar: Black British Art in Action — was a major public art and archives exhibition, the first of its kind in the UK , held at the Guildhall Art Gallery , City of London , over a six-month period 10 July — 24 January ,  with a future digital touring exhibition,  and an associated programme of events. Comprising contemporary fine art combined with archive materials, the multi-media exhibition featured the work of seminal Black British artists and historically significant activists,  and was described by Colin Prescod chair of the Institute of Race Relations as an "exposition of startling and radical imaginative works, addressing grand British cultural and historical matters, and touching on themes of existential and social restlessness".
