Fridman Gallery is honored to present 20th Century works by Dindga McCannon for the Survey sector of Art Basel Miami Beach 2021. In a time of deep social and political unrest surrounding issues of race and gender, McCannon’s five-decade career puts the long road to racial equity into perspective.
McCannon’s use of non-traditional materials, including personal objects, photographs, and ephemera draw the viewer into her world as she imbues her canvases and tapestries with the sounds, feelings, and energy of her community and ancestors. Her works often focus on the history and stories of women — iconic public figures, family, and friends who shape her vibrant universe.
