Installation view of Projects 70: Jim Hodges, Beatriz Milhazes, Faith Ringgold (Banners, Series 2) at The Museum of Modern Art, New York

Continuing the cycle of banner exhibitions, this series shifts the emphasis from written text to craft, traditionally a woman’s province. Jim Hodges pursues love’s trajectory from its inception in the constellations to a golden field on the other side where it resonates to the sounds of wind chimes. The banner by the Brazilian artist Beatriz Milhazes operates with a different pulse; it throbs with the heated sensuality of a swirling curvaceous ornament. Faith Ringgold’s banner, based on her 1991 quilt Matisse’s Chapel, invites a different kind of reflection on race and gender. Poetic, sensuous, and political, the banners reflect each artist’s sensibility and beliefs.
