Famed for her narrative quilts and her brightly colored paintings of African American life, New York artist Faith Ringgold has consistently challenged perceptions of identity and gender inequality through the lenses of the feminist and the civil rights movements. Her work retains its contemporary resonance as cultural assumptions and prejudices persist.
Focusing on works that she has created over the past 50 years, this monograph portrays the breadth of her work, including paintings, story quilts and political posters made during the Black Power movement. The book also includes an interview with the artist conducted by Hans Ulrich Obrist, as well as an essay written by the artist’s daughter, Michelle Wallace.
