This Saturday, June 2, 2007
Iris and B. Gerald Cantor Auditorium, 3rd floor
Come hear Feminist icon, Faith Ringgold discuss her groundbreaking work from the 1960s to the present!
Faith Ringgold‘s inspiring and often humorous stories illustrate her personal journey and beliefs as an artist, activist, author, teacher, and parent. Her talk focuses on art and activism from the 1960s and 1970s to the present, and how she came to use painting, fabrics, quilt-making, and storytelling to create an extensive body of work containing paintings, soft sculpture, masks, and performances. And, after her talk, come be inspired by Faith Ringgold’s talk and create your very own quilt square in the Museum’s Beaux-Arts Court.
For more information on Ringgold’s work, please visit her profile on our Feminist Art Base where you’ll find a biography and lots of images.
We hope to see you Saturday!
