Artists on Art - Betye Saar on Ceremonial Board

As a member of the Black Arts Movement in the 1960s and ’70s, Betye Saar emerged as one the most incisive visual artists to address issues of race and history in the U.S. Her early collages and assemblages are now canonical. In recent decades she has extended into powerful, large-scale installations her interests in mysticism, folk art, non-western art, and personal memory.

For Artists on Art, Betye Saar speaks on a ceremonial board from Papua New Guinea.
