"Dancing at the Louvre: Faith Ringgold's French Collection and Other Story Quilts"
October 1 1998 - January 3 1999
"For over two decades, celebrated New York artist Faith Ringgold combined paint with pieced fabric to create vividly colored quilt paintings. Dancing at the Louvre brings printed and tie-dyed fabric together two series of these vibrant works.
The French Collection, Ringgold's story of a fictional African-American artist and artists' model in 1920s Paris, presents a revisionist view of the early twentieth century School of Paris. The American Collection continues the narrative through the life of the artist's daughter who herself becomes an artist in America."
