A passion for travel and interest in diverse cultures unite two exceptionally creative women: Betye Saar and Isabella Stewart Gardner.
Singer Collection artwork in the show includes 40 works by 27 contemporary artists from the African diaspora.
This is the first Betye Saar assemblage to enter the collection at the National Gallery where it joins one print and two mixed media works.
To know 20th century art, you must know Betye Saar art. Saar’s ‘The Liberation of Aunt Jemima’ ranks among the century’s most important.
Rarely-seen installation works by pioneering artist Betye Saar (b. 1926) will receive their first dedicated exhibition in more than three decades at ICA Miami next October.
Running through January 31, 2021, Betye Saar: Call and Response is the first exhibition to focus on Betye Saar sketchbooks and examine the relationship between her found objects, sketches, and finished works.
