1. Faith Ringgold Artist Talk at Brooklyn Museum

The Brooklyn Museum presents “Brooklyn Talks: Faith Ringgold” on Thursday, September 27, 2018 at 7 p.m.

Faith Ringgold, accompanied by her daughter Michele Wallace, will discuss her work as artist, activist, author, teacher and mother. Born in Harlem in 1930, Ringgold’s artist practice is wide-ranging and includes painting, sculpture, quilt-making, writing and performance. The illustrated lecture will trace her career starting from the early 1960s, including firsthand accounts of the Civil Rights Movement that connect to her "American People" series and move through her body of work containing over 100 paintings.

Ringgold's work is included in the Brooklyn Museum’s exhibition “Soul of a Nation: Art in the Age of Black Power”. On view through February 9, 2019, the exhibition reveals a cross-section of Black artist practices from 1963 to 1983 who were working in communities, collectives and individually and made art in response to the aesthetically revolutionary period in American history.

Tickets to the Talk are $16 or $14 for museum members. The Brooklyn Museum is located at 200 Eastern Parkway, Brooklyn, NY 11238.
