2020-2021 EXHIBITION SEASON STATEMENT:

Art in Action: Visionaries and Voices

As an Art and Design College, Ringling is focused on education. Whether it’s a student or art enthusiast, its galleries afford the visitor the most direct engagement with art and ideas. The artistic vision for this year's program of exhibitions and events is not only to educate our visitors about the information emerging from the artwork and the facts related to it, but also provide cultural programs and exhibitions within the Galleries that will establish itself as a place to gather and share human experiences.

 

Art exhibitions are a launching point to present and discuss matters with which communities wrestle with, by which they are inspired by, or simply enjoy.  Understanding how others think, learning how to listen, and creating a space for empathy, energized by the power of art, are some of the greatest opportunities we can offer our visitors.

 

Art in Action: Visionaries and Voices will go beyond the walls of our buildings. This exhibition season will establish lines of dialogue with our communities, deepening our relationships with them and generating authentic bonds, as we serve them with programs that resonate with their interests while maintaining a museum-quality product. The result is an environment of trust and unity in which our society and campus community can thrive. Our Galleries and related happenings are places where we connect our past and present, build trust, inspire and envision a hopeful future.

——————-

ABOUT THE ARTISTS:  

Faith Ringgold (1930-) 

Storytelling is at the center of Faith Ringgold’s practice. For more than 50 years, she’s been creating, writing, and performing art that documents the American narrative. She’s explored segregation and the Civil Rights Movement, considered black pride and the politics of skin color, and reflected on her personal experiences—sharing how it felt to be a black woman in the 1960s and the decades hence. In recognition of her contributions as an artist and activist, Ringgold has received countless honors, including a National Endowment for the Arts Award, a Guggenheim Fellowship for Painting, and an NAACP Image Award. Her work continues to be exhibited in major museums around the world.   

Aminah Robinson (1940-2015)  

For more than sixty years, Aminah Robinson created art inspired by the African concept of Sankofa: understanding the past in order to go forward. An artist, teacher, storyteller, messenger, and historian, her work reflects the drawing, papermaking, and needlework traditions that she learned from her parents and the training she received in art school. Aminah created sculpture, large complex work she called RagGonNons, rag paintings, paintings on cloth, drawings, and books about her family and community, African American history, her travels, and the stories she was told by her elders. Her goal was to inspire others to research and document the history of their families and communities for the next generation.
