Faith Ringgold is an important artist who is currently the focus of two exhibitions in New York City. Her show at the New Museum, curated by Massimiliano Gioni, Gary Carrion-Murayari, and Madeline Weisburg, surveys her impressive six decade career, while the exhibition at ACA highlights the artists work in print mediums. On the occasion of these exhibitions, Tschabalala Self spoke with Faith Ringgold about growing up in Harlem, the roles of activism and writing in an artists practice, and the importance of seeing art from all cultures and places. Ringgolds long time friend and gallerist, Dorian Bergen, joined Ringgold for the conversation.
