For Frieze Los Angeles 2024, Roberts Projects is pleased to present a tightly-curated selection of works that interpret and subvert the meaning of “oasis” from a diverse range of perspectives. Works by contemporary artists including Amoako Boafo, Daniel Crews-Chubb, Lenz Geerk, Suchitra Mattai, Collins Obijiaku, Ed Templeton and Brenna Youngblood, as well as highly-established figures such as Noah Davis and Betye Saar, conjure sensations of relief that nurture the human spirit while contemplating the hardships from which we seek refuge.

A major highlight of our booth is Betye Saar’s neon work Oasis, which debuted at MOCA Los Angeles in 1984. This year marks the 40th anniversary of Saar’s transcendent solo exhibition, which featured room- sized installations that shared profound insight into ritual, spirituality and African American identity.

Suchitra Mattai’s time travelers (2024) and Brenna Youngblood’s Into the Cosmos (For Alex) (2011) are mixed-media sculptures that employ metaphor and materiality to generate poetic abstractions of the natural world and the parallels found in our personal relationships. A 2023 recipient of the “Anonymous Was a Woman” Award, Mattai will also debut a new mixed-media sculpture made especially for the fair.
