Betye Saar: Uneasy Dancer

Published by Fondazione Prada
Edited with text by Mario Mainetti, Chiara Costa, Elvira Dyangani Ose. Foreword by Miuccia Prada, Patrizio Bertelli. Text by Richard J. Powell, Deborah Willis, Kellie E. Jones.

"Search for Lost Future" (2015) is reproduced from 'Betye Saar: Uneasy Dancer.'Uneasy Dancer brings together over 80 works including installations, assemblages, collages and sculptures by the pioneering Los Angeles artist Betye Saar (born 1926) produced between 1966 and 2016. This handsomely designed volume presents Saar’s work as a copiously illustrated timeline, with numerous documentary images and exhibition details.
“Uneasy Dancer” is an expression Saar has used to define both herself and her artistic practice: “my work moves in a creative spiral with the concepts of passage, crossroads, death and rebirth, along with the underlying elements of race and gender.” Through her use of found objects, personal memorabilia and derogatory images that evoke denied or distorted narratives, Saar developed a powerful social critique that challenges racial and sexist stereotypes deeply rooted in American culture.

"Search for Lost Future" (2015) is reproduced from 'Betye Saar: Uneasy Dancer.'

Betye Saar: Uneasy Dancer

Betye Saar: Uneasy Dancer"Sock it to 'Em" (2011) is reproduced from Betye Saar: Uneasy Dancer, Fondazione Prada's astonishing new Irma Boom-designed survey of the artist's work and archives intermixed with a deep and rich timeline of the history of American civil rights. "Through Saar's work we look at black life as a series of events that occur over time," Deborah Willis writes. "The period starts with the first event, birth, and ends with the final event, death, resurrected through the life of the photograph. Through her work we relive family stories both celebratory and painful; we marvel over the preservation of family material culture from pincushions to religious objects. Saar is interested in shaping complex experiences through rediscovered artifacts, and 'intersectionality' is central to her narrative." continue to blog
