This solo exhibition of seminal contemporary artist Betye Saar features the artist’s series of washboard assemblage sculptures—an ongoing body of work Saar started in the late 1990s. The washboard is a potent object for Saar, a reference she uses to examine the intersection of race, class, and labor. Saar has shaped the development of assemblage art in the United States, and the washboard pieces demonstrate Saar’s ongoing commitment to illuminate the social and political concerns of our time. To give deeper context to the washboard assemblages, two related tableaux and a selection of washboards from Saar’s personal collection are included in the exhibition.
