The ground-breaking work of Faith Ringgold 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.

Focussing on different series that she has created over the past 50 years, this survey of her work will include paintings, story quilts, soft sculptures and political posters made during the Black Power movement including one to free activist Angela Davis.
