Art History Lecture: Alison Saar

October 4, 2018 @ 4:30 pm - 6:00 pm


Time: 04:30 pm – 06:00 pm
Location: Manetti Shrem Museum of Art

Alison Saar is an internationally acclaimed artist whose works are poignant explorations of her personal and cultural identity. Saar’s  sculptures, often made of found materials such as wood, metal, wire, shoes and bottles, call on a wide variety of sources — African and Haitian folklore, contemporary African American culture, mythology, and the practices of “outsider” artists. Through her figurative art, she examines gender, race, heritage and history.

Saar has had solo exhibitions at the Museum of the African Diaspora, San Francisco; High Museum of Art, Atlanta; and the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden, Washington, D.C. Her art is in the collections of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Whitney Museum of American Art, Los Angeles County Museum of Art, and the J. Paul Getty Museum. Saar studied studio art and art history at Scripps College in Claremont, California, and earned her MFA from the Otis Art Institute in Los Angeles.
