This catalogue is published on the occasion of the artist and activist Faith Ringgold’s (b. 1930, NYC) first solo institutional exhibition in Europe at the Serpentine Galleries (6 June – 8 September 2019). Focusing on different series of paintings, story quilts and political posters from 1960s until today the publication includes a new text by academic Michele Wallace, which interweaves Ringgold’s biography with the chronology of works in the exhibition. In an extensive interview Hans Ulrich Obrist and Faith Ringgold discuss her life in Harlem, the Civil Rights Movement of the 1960s, her inspirations and her passion for storytelling and exercising her freedom of speech. Illustrating over 60 works, this catalogue is designed by Zoë Anspach.
