Published on the occasion of Betye Saar's exhibition at Roberts Projects (September 18 – November 6, 2021), this catalogue features new watercolor works on paper and historic assemblages incorporating Saar’s personal collection of black dolls. Referencing the underrepresented history of black dolls as seen through Saar’s artistic lens, the catalogue distills several intersecting themes, imagery, and objects in Saar’s oeuvre, highlighting her prominent usage and reinvention of derogatory imagery.
