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."
