Faith Ringgold: American People | New Museum

Bringing together over sixty years of work that links the multi-disciplinary practices of the Harlem Renaissance to the political art of young Black artists working today, Faith Ringgold: American People provides the most comprehensive assessment of the artist to date. This retrospective examines Ringgold’s figurative style as it evolved to meet the urgency of political and social change. It foregrounds her radical explorations of gender and racial identities, which the artist incorporates into the rich textures of her paintings, soft sculptures, and story quilts.
