Employing both found and traditional artistic materials, Alison Saar’s sculptures and assemblages meditate on a range of experiences related to the African diaspora and femininity. The daughter of the artist Betye Saar, she continues her mother’s attention to the marginalization of both women and minorities. Often working with female nudes, Saar is among a larger generation of artists who recognize the body as a site of identity formation, acknowledging historical injustices and presenting defiant figures that seem to transcend their pasts. Referencing African and Afro-Caribbean art in her work, she often alludes to mythological narratives or rituals that fuel notions of history and identity.
