"Betye Saar: Call and Response"

One of the most significant assemblage artists working today, Betye Saar (born 1926, Los Angeles) addresses spirituality, gender, and race in her art. Part of the strong Southern California tradition of artists using found objects, she combines items typically discovered at flea markets and secondhand stores into conceptually and physically elaborate creations. Saar’s creative process, however, does more than reflect on the outside world; she ruminates on and plays with objects and ideas, making sketches inspired by specific items in her possession. These sketches form an essential part of what she considers the mysterious transformation of object into art. This exhibition offers the first public opportunity to view Saar’s sketchbooks and to examine the relationship among Saar’s found objects, sketches, and finished works, shedding new light on her art.
