Betye Saar - Shop - Roberts Projects LA

To celebrate the publication of Betye Saar: Black Doll Blues, Roberts Projects has produced a tote bag featuring a drawing by Saar, Hoo Doo Woman, 1974.

Betye Saar: Black Doll Blues is an investigation into Saar's lifelong interest in Black dolls, with new watercolors, historic assemblages, sketchbooks and a selection of Black dolls from the artist’s collection. Published on the occasion of Betye Saar's exhibition at Roberts Projects, Culver City, California (September 18 – November 6, 2021.)

The catalogue is packaged with a pop-out cardboard doll modeled after Saar’s Hoo Doo Woman (1974), a Black doll significant for being the only piece in her collection hand-made by the artist. The doll is double sided, full color, and comes with a functional cardboard stand.

Los Angeles based assemblage artist Betye Saar is one of the most important of her generation. Since the 1960s, her practice has evolved over time to succinctly reflect the environmental, cultural, technological, economic, racial and historical context in which it exists.
