Barbara Chase-Riboud talks with Joan H. Allen, host of INSIDE NEW YORK about her artwork, poetry and takes us on an Exclusive Gallery Tour of her exhibit, "Malcolm X: Complete" at the Michael Rosenfeld Gallery!  [CLICK ] on an excerpt below.

Friday, Nov. 3rd @11:30am & Saturday, Nov. 4th @ 10:30am on MNN5, INSIDE NEW YORK will rebroadcast its Exclusive: Barbara Chase-Riboud Interview & Gallery Tour!

It has taken 50 years and it’s now complete.  Barbara Chase-Riboud—Malcolm X: Complete, an exhibition celebrating her now complete series of monumental bronze and fiber sculptures that the artist has created over the last half-century in honor of the slain human rights leader has opened at the Michael Rosenfeld Gallery.  The exhibition is her second large-scale solo show at the gallery.

   “It’s epic because it stretches      
    from the first Malcolm X     
    steles which I did in 1969 to     
    the last five and the whole suite 
    is 20,” Barbara Chase-Riboud  

This week, INSIDE NEW YORK will rebroadcast its Special 3-part mini-series Exclusive on Barbara Chase-Riboud, the internationally acclaimed and award-winning artist, author and poet about her new exhibit, her bestselling novel, Sally Hemings and the latest developments and her many other projects!  This final episode features an Exclusive interview and Gallery Tour of her exhibit at the Michael Rosenfeld Gallery which will be closing on November 4th.
For over five decades, Barbara Chase-Riboud has created abstract art with a deep and nuanced understanding of history, identity, and a sense of place. In 1969, Chase-Riboud created Monument to Malcolm for the 7 américains de Paris show held at the Galerie Air France in Manhattan. This work,
as art historian Pellom McDaniels writes: “marked the arrival of her signature style. It appeared to represent a fallen robe or garment on a surface [reminiscent of] marble..."
Barbara Chase-Riboud—Malcolm X: Complete is the first time that fourteen of the twenty steles are shown together. Her amazing exhibition at the Michael Rosenfeld Gallery until November 4th is not only a contribution to the preservation of the memory of Malcolm X, but also an acknowledgment of the push for global justice that he continues to inspire.
