In “Uproot,” Alison Saar employs historical memory and media as a lens through which to view the contemporary and delves deeper into the realities, histories, and layers of Black womanhood in the United States. This exhibition excavates the intersection of racialized gender inequity and reproductive rights. Comprised of sculptures and paintings, this will be the artist’s eighth solo exhibition at L.A. Louver

Alison Saar / DeConkified, 2022 / wood, ceiling tin, wire, and found scissors / 46 1/4 x 14 x 11 in. (117.5 x 35.6 x 27.9 cm)

In “Uproot,” Saar proclaims the sovereignty of Black women over their own bodies. By reconfiguring historical forms and materials into vehicles for education and illumination, she pays tribute to the hardships endured, past and present, in what is ultimately a memorial to Black women’s resilience, courage, and strength.

The group exhibition “The Wine Dark Sea” features artists Terry Allen, Richard Deacon, Charles Garabedian, Andy Goldsworthy, Ben Jackel, Glenn Kaino, Sandra Mendelsohn Rubin, Don Suggs, and William T. Wiley.
