Betye Saar: Serious Moonlight
ICA Miami presents a survey of rarely exhibited, site-specific installations dating from 1980 to 1998 by American artist Betye Saar.
Rooted in the artist’s critical focus on Black identity and intersectional feminism as well as the racialized and gendered connotations of found objects, Saar’s installations expand on her celebrated repertoire and offer broad insight into ritual, spirituality, and cosmologies in relation to the African American experience and the African diaspora.
Through her artworks, Saar exams race and gender with assemblages of readymades and found objects which went on to become the icons of Black feminist art. The artist often altered and augmented found, commercially available objects in her work to highlight and dismantle racialized images that pervade everyday life.
