Faith Ringgold is an American artist, activist and educator whose life work to date has explored the feminist and civil rights movements. Ringgold was born in Harlem in the 1930s and has been working in the art world since the 1960s, garnering a reputation for her politically potent paintings and story quilts.
Her art draws on a wide range of visual and cultural influences, from European Modernism to African tribal masks. This exhibition will focus on different series that Ringgold has produced over the past 50 years, including a selection of her quilts and paintings, as well as other bodies of work, including political posters.
Ringgold's work is wildly popular in the U.S. and its European debut promises to be a thought-provoking conclusion to the 2019 Serpentine season.
