Virtual Views Faith Ringgold

Here is some interesting works of art by Faith Ringgold I thought some of you here might be interested in.

From Anne Umland, The Blanchette Hooker Rockefeller Senior Curator of Painting and Sculpture:

“Last September, Faith Ringgold came to see her iconic painting American People Series #20: Die newly installed in MoMA’s fifth-floor collection galleries. Having the opportunity to look at and talk about Ringgold’s great, incendiary painting with her that day remains an indelible memory, made all the more vivid in light of the protests that have spread across the country. Today, while Die remains in the galleries, waiting for the moment when the Museum can safely reopen, its unflinching confrontation of race relations has never seemed more urgent, as we—individually, as an institution, and as a nation—grapple with the systemic racism amplified by the recent horrific killings of Black citizens, and by the devastating, disproportionate toll of COVID-19 on Black and Brown communities.I’m deeply grateful to Ringgold for agreeing to join me, and you—from wherever you are—tonight at 8:00 p.m. EDT, for a live Q&A about Die, her broader career, and her activism, as part of our online exploration Virtual Views: Faith Ringgold.”
