Stories and Journeys: The Art of Faith Ringgold and Aminah Robinson

Among the most vital artists working today are two octogenarians, Faith Ringgold and Aminah Robinson. Each of these extraordinary women creates work that incorporates and addresses the cultural legacy that black Americans inherited from their African ancestors. Over their combined 120 year creative journey, Ringgold and Robinson have reconstructed, in various media, the spirited and inventive multi-media forms of the African past. Their subjects, however, are contemporary or investigations of the recent past.
