Betye and Alison Saar Talk Art at the California African American Museum #ArtTuesday

via HYPERALLERGIC

The Saars are a formidable artistic family spanning two generations whose works fearlessly examine issues of identity and culture. Working primarily in assemblage, Los Angeles-based artist Betye Saar has been creating challenging, often political works that interrogate assumptions about race and gender for 50 years, and at 90 she shows no signs of slowing down. Her daughter Alison Saar is a sculptor whose body-centered works capture the physical pain and spiritual resilience of the African diaspora. Their collaborative piece, “House of Gris Gris” (1989), is included in the exhibition Taking Place at the California African American Museum, which features African-American visions of home. It is also the jumping-off point for their mother-daughter conversation this Thursday, which will shed light on their familial path through the art world.
