Edited with text by Stephanie Seidel. Foreword by Alex Gartenfeld. Text by Sampada Aranke, Edwidge Danticat. Interview by Leah Ollman.

Betye Saar: Serious Moonlight

Rarely seen installation works that exemplify this pioneering artist’s critical focus on Black identity and Black feminism

Showcasing a lesser-known aspect of Saar’s art, Betye Saar: Serious Moonlight provides new insights into her explorations of ritual, spirituality and cosmologies, as well as themes of the African diaspora. Featured here are significant installations created by Saar from 1980 to 1998, including Oasis (1984), a work that will be reconfigured at ICA Miami’s Saar exhibition for the first time in more than 30 years.
With compelling scholarship and rich illustration—combining new installation photography and archival material—the monograph provides a fresh look at this significant artist’s critical and influential practice. Betye Saar: Serious Moonlight reinforces and celebrates Saar’s standing as a visionary artist, storyteller and mythmaker, and the ongoing significance and relevance of her work to the most pressing issues in America today.
Betye Saar (born 1926) is renowned for pioneering Black feminism and West Coast assemblage in her visionary artistic practice, through dense, complexly referential objects. For over six decades, Saar’s work has led dialogues on race and gender, reflecting changing cultural and political contexts. Most recently, solo presentations have been hosted by the Museum of Modern Art, New York, and the Los Angeles County Museum of Art. Saar’s work was prominently featured in We Wanted a Revolution: Black Radical Women, 1965–85 at the Brooklyn Museum, New York, and in Soul of a Nation: Art in the Age of Black Power at Tate Modern, London, which traveled to Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art, Bentonville, Arkansas; Brooklyn Museum; The Broad, Los Angeles; and the M.H. de Young Memorial Museum, Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco.

Featuring a pull-off poster cover, 'Betye Saar: Serious Moonlight' is a New Release this week!

"Memory of Fire" (1987), from Betye Saar's 1998 House of Fortune installation, is reproduced from Serious Moonlight, the catalog to Saar's recent exhibition at ICA Miami. In House of Fortune, Saar combines a variety of spiritual and religious traditions that deal with fate and future. She is quoted: "It is not that I’m emulating Haitian Vodou or New Orleans Hoodoo or Chango or Santeria. I just take a little bit from each one. … It’s one planet and how everybody contributes to that through their ethnic origins or their cultural practices." continue to blog
