PORTRAIT CAMPAIGN SS17
Wearing the DUBLIN frame, Los Angeles-based visual artist Betye Saar is the new subject of l.a.Eyeworks’ portrait campaign, photographed by Greg Gorman.
With a prolific career now spanning more than five decades, Betye Saar’s artwork encompasses diverse media, including assemblage, sculpture, collage and installation. These works are frequently charged with incisive social and political allegory while also delving into more ephemeral realms of personal memory, identity, and spiritual symbolism.
The enduring spirit and vision of this vibrant 90-year-old artist is reflected in numerous recent solo and group exhibitions at prestigious arts institutions including the Fondazione Prada (Milan), the Brooklyn Museum, and forthcoming exhibitions at the Los Angeles Craft and Folk Art Museum and the Tate Modern (London).
