Faith Ringgold (American, born 1930). .
The United States of Attica was featured in our exhibition Soul of a Nation: Art in the Age of Black Power. Faith Ringgold documented the 1971 uprising at Attica Prison, over demands for inmate rights, that left forty-three dead. The image presents the Attica Prison riot not as an isolated event but as an American tragedy to be understood within an ongoing, nationwide context. The caption reads: “This map of American violence is incomplete / Please write in whatever you find lacking.” At the height of its popularity, this print was circulated as two thousand small-format posters. Ringgold first studied printmaking at the Black Arts Repertory Theatre/School founded by Amiri Baraka.
This print has been produced with the highest quality pigmented, non-toxic, environmentally friendly ink with a color permanence rating of at least 200-year stability. Printed on 100% acid-free cotton fine art paper. Prints are available either unframed or framed. All unframed prints include a suitably sized white border which enhances their look when placed in any standard off-the-shelf frame. Frames are made of wood and available in Black or White.
