This new limited edition print follows Faith Ringgold’s acclaimed survey exhibition at the Serpentine Galleries in 2019 – the artist’s first in a European institution which included paintings, political posters and story quilts from the past six decades.
The image of a singer and her band in this large 13-colour screen print originates from Ringgold’s Jazz Stories series of quilts which she begun in 2004, one of which was included in the Serpentine exhibition. In this body of work, Ringgold looks back to Harlem and the vibrant legacy of jazz. Growing up in the creative and intellectual context of the Harlem Renaissance, Ringgold’s life has been surrounded by jazz musicians, many of whom continue to inspire her practice.
