Interview with Faith Ringgold
“Anyone can fly. All you gotta do is try”
The ground-breaking work of Faith Ringgold (b. 1930, Harlem, New York) is celebrated in this exhibition at the Serpentine Galleries, her first in a European institution. For more than five decades, Ringgold has consistently challenged perceptions of African American 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.
