Conceived as an exploration of the diverse media of contemporary sculpture in Los Angeles and made possible in part by Betye Saar’s revolutionary use of materials and expansion of intention, Holding Up 1/2 the Sky investigates how the dimensionality of sculpture lends itself to feminine thought, particularly as it manifests in the intersectionality of aesthetics, narrative and meaning. The exhibition brings together women artists whose abstract sculptures operate in call and response to Saar’s installation Something Blue, currently on view in the neighboring exhibition space.
