NEW YORK, NY.- Phillips announced an online selling exhibition of works by artist Dindga McCannon. Featuring 11 paintings and mixed-media work, seven of which are new works executed this year, Phillips X Presents: Dindga McCannon has been organized directly with the artist, presenting a remarkable ensemble of works by McCannon that span her career. A founding member of the influential Weusi Artist Collective and Where We At offshoot of Black Women Artists in the 1970s, McCannon is a self-taught mixed media artist who works across print making, painting and textiles. A pioneering feminist and Black Pride artist, for 55 years McCannon’s work has celebrated Black Women. Phillips X Presents: Dindga McCannon will be on view online exclusively at from 16 November to 16 December 2020.

“With Where We At, our battle was with the outside world, we were trying to make our position as Black women artists viable, we had a right to exist and to express ourselves,” states McCannon. “I never wanted to be stuck as a quilter or pigeonholed, but I see my textile work as art quilting, everything I was doing with printmaking, painting and illustrating could be put into textile. That meant that it was ho holds bar, I could use anything and I do.”

David Norman, Phillips’ Chairman of the Americas, states: “We are thrilled to bring the work of Dindga McCannon to Phillips. She is a groundbreaking artist whose work across mediums, including textiles and quilting and figurative painting, defies easy categorization, but cements her as a visionary artist who has charted her own path over the past 55 years. As a whole, her body of work is richly narrative and speaks to Black Pride and feminism in a way that is singular and extremely powerful.”

Born in Harlem in 1947, McCannon’s career as a self-taught artist is anchored in activism and a studio practice that is varied across multi-media. Her work is held in the permanent collection of major institutions and collections including the Brooklyn Museum, The Studio Museum in Harlem, Johnson Publishing Co., Schomberg Center for Research in Black Culture, Harlem, Arts in Embassies Program, Washington DC, and Springfield Technical College.
