Faith Ringgold @ Pippy Houldsworth Gallery

23 February 2018 - 16 April 2018

This is the first European solo exhibition of acclaimed African-American artist Faith Ringgold. This follows her inclusion in the recent group exhibition Soul of a Nation: Art in the Age of Black Power at Tate Modern, London earlier this year. The show will comprise an overview of the artist’s iconic ‘story quilts’ from the mid-1980s to the present, alongside a small selection of early paintings from the 1960s. Throughout the 1960s, Ringgold produced politically charged paintings that shattered the notion of the American dream by highlighting racial and gender inequalities rife in society. A selection of portraits from this period will be on view, including several paintings from the monumental American People Series (1963-67).
