POLITI OSO featuring the works of master artist Faith Ringgold and Aminah Brenda Lynn Robinson :: B2 gallery explores the “alarm bells of consciousness” through idioms of feminism, race, culture,
religion, and the body politic –

If there was ever a time for art to talk about race — with Donald Trump on a roll and the Black Lives Matter movement growing — now would be a crucial time. With that backdrop, Tacoma’s B2 Fine Art Gallery speaks with the voices of two elder stateswomen of African American art: Aminah Robinson and Faith Ringgold. With a poetic language of fabric, paint, feminism and activism, these two luminaries combine in “Politi Oso,” a show that’s not only rare in Tacoma, but vital.
