Betye Saar
Soul of a Nation: Art in the Age of Black Power 1963-1983
The Broad, Los Angeles
March 23 – September 1, 2019

Roberts Projects is pleased to announce Betye Saar’s participation in Soul of a Nation: Art in the Age of Black Power 1963-1983 at The Broad, Los Angeles. The exhibition shines light on a broad spectrum of Black artistic practice from 1963 to 1983, one of the most politically, socially, and aesthetically revolutionary periods in American history. Black artists across the country worked in communities, in collectives, and individually to create a range of art responsive to the moment-including figurative and abstract painting, prints, and photography; assemblage and sculpture; and performance. Betye Saar will be represented with iconic historical assemblage works in addition to an abridged installation of her 1973 California State University, Los Angeles exhibition. Soul of a Nation: Art in the Age of Black Power 1963-1983 is organized by Tate Modern, London in collaboration with The Broad, Los Angeles, Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art, Bentonville, Arkansas and Brooklyn Museum, New York. Curated by Mark Godfrey, Senior Curator, International Art and Zoe Whitley, Curator, International Art, Tate Modern. The Broad presentation is curated by Sarah Loyer, Associate Curator and Exhibitions Manager. A fully illustrated catalogue published by Tate/D.A.P. accompanies the exhibition.
