LACMA presents the first exhibition to examine the relationship between artist Betye Saar’s sketchbooks (which she has kept since the late 1960s) and her finished works. Featuring approximately 40 objects, the show spans Saar’s career, from her early work in the early 70s through the present day. Addressing spirituality, gender, and race in her art, Saar ponders on, and plays with, objects and ideas. and she makes sketches based upon specific found objects in her possession. In her sketchbooks Saar does drawings of specific found objects and lays out quick visuals for works, jotting down ideas about materials and potential titles for finished pieces. The exhibit, which is described as good for all ages, offers opportunities for gallery-goers to consider topics of identity and race.
