Betye Saar: Serious Moonlight examines rarely seen installations by pioneering artist Betye Saar. These works are the magnificent yet relatively unknow counterparts to her famed assemblages — expanded into space and providing immersive experiences that actively incorporate audiences through ritual and community. Betys Saar: Serious Moonlight surveys the artist's most significant installations from 1977 to present day, including Oasis (1984), a work reconfigured for the first time in more than thirty years. With texts by Sampada Aranke, Edwidge Danticat, and Stephanie Seidel, an interview with the artist Leah Ollman, as well as rich illustrations—combining installation photography and never-before-published materials from the artist's archive—this monograph provides a novel look at the renowned artist's critical and influential practice. This publication celebrates Saar's standing as a visionary artist, storyteller, and mythmaker, and speaks to the ongoing significance of her work to the most pressing issues today.

Authors: Sampada Aranke, Edwinge Danticat, Alex Gartenfeld, Leah Ollma, Stephanie Seidel
