About this Poster:  “The world closes in on us, and yet painting...becomes more expansive. No longer content to be a discrete object, painting aspires to become a world.” So the critic Hilton Kramer, writing in the New York Times in July 1967, described how oversize paintings fill our field of vision.1 Faith Ringgold left the same exhibition Kramer was reviewing with a markedly different impression: “I came away with the idea that there was more to a big canvas than its size; that there had to be a good reason for taking up so much space if the painting was to be more than merely expensive wallpaper.”

At that moment Ringgold was immersed in her own large-scale painting project for an exhibition that December at Spectrum, a cooperative gallery a few blocks from MoMA. The show would be her first outside Harlem, where she was born, lived, and taught art at P.S. 100. Its capstone,  American People Series #20: Die (hereafter Die, as it was known at the time), was her last, largest, and most ambitious painting of that summer." (moma.com)

This poster comes to us from a private collection. It is in very good condition and ready to be framed.
