AUG 07 Gallery Talk: Faith Ringgold

Get some art in during lunch break!

This summer, join NMWA staff members for short gallery discussions that explore the highlights of our diverse summer exhibitions of work by Faith Ringgold, Audrey Niffenegger, and Bice Lazzari.

This week, Associate Educator Addie Gayoso discusses selections from American People, Black Light: Faith Ringgolds Paintings of the 1960s. Through close looking and guided inquiry, participants will examine Ringgold’s work and reflect upon its themes.

ABOUT THE EXHIBITION:

Revealed through 49 rarely exhibited paintings, Faith Ringgold developed expressive figures and adapted African designs to reflect on momentous events that shaped America in the 1960s. These bold images represent Ringgold’s response to the Civil Rights and feminist movements.
