Dindga McCannon: Dindga!

Katy Donoghue

11 October 2022

“Dindga!” Is Dindga McCannon’s first solo exhibition in Europe, on view at Pippy Houldsworth Gallery in London from October 11—November 12. Growing up in 1950s Harlem, the artist’s practice as it exists today is the product of a fierce scrutiny of the inequalities faced by Black women in America, her mother and grandmother’s instructions in needlework, and an upbringing that involved civil rights activism and involvement in the Weusi Artist Collective, and later, the founding of the collective Where We At Black Women Artists Inc., alongside names like Faith Ringgold and Kay Brown. This survey exhibition of McCannon’s practice highlights the artist’s community-minded ethos and varied use of mediums through works spanning the present day back to the 1960s, like the watercolor Smoking Man (1967), the 2022 sculptural Carnival, and a mixed media quilt titled Words Form the Threads of Our Experiences from 2015.
