The New Museum

Please join Director and Chief Curator of the Studio Museum Thelma Golden for a curator-led tour of Faith Ringgold: American People with Gary Carrion-Murayari, the New Museum’s Kraus Family Curator.     

Faith Ringgold is one of the most influential cultural figures of her generation, with a career linking the multi-disciplinary practices of the Harlem Renaissance to the political art of young Black artists working today. For sixty years, Ringgold has drawn from both personal autobiography and collective histories to document her life as an artist and mother and to amplify the struggles for social justice and equity. Faith Ringgold: American People is the most comprehensive exhibition to date of this ground-breaking artist’s vision. This retrospective provides a timely opportunity to experience the art of an American icon.
