In celebration of artist and activist Faith Ringgold, the New Museum presents a retrospective of works, “Faith Ringgold: American People,” on view through June 5 at the New Museum. As an artist, writer, educator, and mother, Ringgold has fought for social justice and equity through painting, sculpture, performance, and the written word for over fifty years. The exhibition includes “super-realist” paintings and iconic political posters from the civil rights era, performance objects and soft sculptures from the 1970s and 80s, as well as the subsequent acclaimed story quilts. Programming includes panel conversations with artists and curators, art classes, virtual and in-person tours, as well as a Reading Room to host Ringgold’s award-winning children’s books.
