Betye Saar: Uneasy Dancer

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.'

PRAISE AND REVIEWS

Bookforum

Uneasy Dancer takes a comprehensive look at the life and work of Saar…[borrowing from] the artist’s signature assemblage technique in its structure, which centers on an illustrated timeline pieced together from Saar’s private archives.

Celebrate the end of Black History Month and the beginning of Women's History Month with 'Betye Saar: Uneasy Dancer'

Celebrate the end of Black History Month and the beginning of Women's History Month with 'Betye Saar: Uneasy Dancer'

"Sock it to 'Em" (2011) is reproduced from Betye Saar: Uneasy Dancer, Fondazione Prada's astonishing 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. Great reading for Black History Month and Women's History Month. "Through Saar's work we look at black life as a series of events that occur over time," Deborah Willis writes. "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
