Family Legacies: The Art of Betye, Lezley, and Alison Saar

Family Legacies is the first exhibition of the Saars’s work to examine the relationship of these three important artists to each other within the context of the family’s distinct contributions to art history. The exhibition features thirty-six objects, including mixed-media sculptures, assemblages, collages, and a collaborative installation created by the Saars. With twelve key works by each artist, representing the full chronological range and stylistic evolution of their oeuvre, the exhibition addresses themes that underline the artists’ family ties, multi-racial heritage, and strong affinities to nature and African cultures.
