Betye Saar: Drifting Toward Twilight

The Pasadena-born artist is a sensation the world over, and New York’s art enthusiasts have a particular affinity for her assemblages and prints. Her latest show takes her work back out West, specifically to a museum she possesses “fond memories” of visiting as a child. There, she transforms an entire room into an installation dedicated to the enduring impact of nature on her practice. Saar sets the scene with a 17-foot-long vintage canoe and other found objects: wooden bird cages holding singular antlers act as “passengers,” while azure walls, a map of moon phases, and a poem she penned create a soothing, otherworldly scene.
