  • Artist - Betye Saar - Biography
    Betye Irene Saar (born 1926) is an American artist known for her work in the medium of assemblage, but is also a visual storyteller and an accomplished printmaker. She credited printmaking as her "segue from design into fine arts.
    Saar was a part of the Black Arts Movement in the 1970s, which engaged myths and stereotypes about race and femininity. Her work is considered highly political, as she challenged negative ideas about African-Americans throughout her career. In 2017, she had a solo show at the Craft & Folk Art Museum, Los Angeles, and her work was included in ‘Soul of a Nation: Art in the Age of Black Power’ at Tate Modern, London.
