The exhibition "Betye Saar: Call and Response" looks at the relationship between found objects, sketches the artist then makes in small sketchbooks--which Betye 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.
