FAITH RINGGOLD: Black is beautiful January 31 through July 2, 2023 Musée Picasso Paris 5 Rue de Thorigny 75003 Paris, France
The Picasso Museum presents Faith Ringgold’s Black is beautiful, her first comprehensive solo exhibition in Paris. An extension of her recent retrospective at the New Museum in New York, Ringgold’s show in Paris will also include works from her ‘French Collection’, that take inspiration from the early 20th century Parisian art scene and artists such as Picasso.
Faith Ringgold is a major figure in American feminist art, from the civil rights struggles to those of Black Lives Matter, and the author of some very famous works in children’s literature. Her work links the rich heritage of the Harlem Renaissance to the current art of young black American artists.
Through her rereadings of modern art history, she engages in a genuine plastic and critical dialogue with the Parisian art scene of the early 20th century, particularly with Picasso and his “Demoiselles d’Avignon”. This exhibition is the first to bring together, in France, a group of major works by Faith Ringgold. It extends the retrospective devoted to her by the New Museum in early 2022 and is organized in collaboration with this New York institution.
