An affordable introduction to the quilts, paintings and posters of Faith Ringgold, a preeminent chronicler of Black life in America

Famed for her narrative quilts and her brightly colored paintings of African American life, New York artist Faith Ringgold (born 1930) has consistently challenged perceptions of identity and gender inequality through the lenses of the feminist and the civil rights movements.

As cultural assumptions and prejudices persist, her work retains its contemporary resonance both for observers and for fellow artists inspired by her narrative mastery and her ability to give mythical power to scenes of everyday life.

Focusing on different series that she has created over the past 50 years, this monograph portrays the breadth of her work, including paintings, story quilts and political posters made during the Black Power movement. The book also includes an interview with the artist conducted by Hans Ulrich Obrist, as well as an essay written by the artist’s daughter, Michelle Wallace.
