Featured Video: Betye Saar: Call and Response // Exhibition Walkthrough

The exhibition Betye Saar: Call and Response looks at the relationship between found objects, sketches the artist then makes in small sketchbooks--which Saar has made throughout her career--and finished works. In this short video LACMA’s Senior Curator of Modern Art and organizing curator of the exhibition, Carol S. Eliel, shares a few highlights from this rare look into a process that has spanned Saar’s entire career.

 

LACMA's Artists on Art videos offer insights into works in the museum's encyclopedic collection that have inspired and informed artists working today.
