Brooklyn Talks: Faith Ringgold SOLD OUT

Thursday, September 27, 2018

7–9 pm

Iris and B. Gerald Cantor Auditorium, 3rd Floor

This event is now sold out.

Legendary artist Faith Ringgold, included in our special exhibition Soul of a Nation: Art in the Age of Black Power, discusses her work as an artist, activist, author, teacher, and parent from the 1960s to the present day. She is joined by her daughter, Michele Wallace.

Born in Harlem in 1930, Ringgold has developed a wide-ranging practice encompassing painting, sculpture, quilt-making, writing, and performance. Through inspiring and often humorous stories, Ringgold’s illustrated lecture traces her career from the early 1960s—with political imagery and firsthand accounts of the Civil Rights Movement in her American People Series—through the evolution of a body of work containing more than a hundred paintings.

Tickets are $16 and include Museum admission. Member tickets are $14. Not a Member? Join today!
