Fridman Gallery is honored to present Dindga McCannon’s first major art fair presentation in her five-decade career, bringing together a range of works spanning the 1960s to 1990s – mixed media quilts, paintings, and prints.


McCannon studied with outstanding artists and teachers, such as Charles Alston, Jacob Lawrence, Al Loving, and Richard Mayhew, at the Art Students League of New York and the Robert Blackburn Printmaking Workshop.. She went on to become a pillar of the influential African-American art collective Weusi, and later a co-founder (with Faith Ringgold) of Where We At, a groundbreaking collective affiliated with the Black Arts Movement.


Combining oil painting, printmaking, sewing, and non-traditional materials – personal objects, photographs, and ephemera – has made McCannon an early influencer of found-object quilting. Her works have focused on the stories of women — iconic public figures, unknown heroines, family, and friends who shape her vibrant universe.


Dindga’s work is in the public collections of the Brooklyn Museum, the Studio Museum in Harlem, the Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture, and Michigan State University. Dindga’s work has featured in major museum exhibitions, including We Wanted A Revolution: Black Radical Women, 1965-1985 organized by the Brooklyn Museum; and Black Power at the National Civil Rights Museum, Memphis, Tennessee.
