One of the most significant assemblage artists working today, Betye Saar (born 1926, Los Angeles) addresses spirituality, gender, and race in her art. Part of the strong Southern California tradition of artists using found objects (including Edward Kienholz, John Outterbridge, and Noah Purifoy), she combines items typically discovered at flea markets and secondhand stores into conceptually and physically elaborate creations. Saar's creative process, however, does more than reflect on the outside world; she ruminates on and plays with objects and ideas, making sketches inspired by specific items in her possession. These sketches form an essential part of what she considers the mysterious transformation of object into art.
All events are subject to change due to weather or other concerns. Please check with the venue or organization to ensure an event is taking place as scheduled. The Nasher Sculpture Center will present Betye Saar: "Call and Response," the first exhibition to examine the relationship between Saar’s sketchbooks, which she has kept since the late 1960s, and her finished works. Organized for the Los Angeles County Museum of Art by LACMA’s Senior Curator of Modern Art, Carol S. Eliel, the exhibition features approximately 40 objects and covers the span of the artist’s career, including work from her early years through the present day.
September 27, 2021: On August 30 the last of four Saar 6 corvettes arrived in Israel from Germany, where it was built. This comes eight months after the first one arrived from Germany, where the Israeli crew conducted sea trials and other tests before making the two-week voyage to Israel. The other three did not linger in Germany and the Israeli crews quickly brought their new ships home. These new ships had all the electronic equipment for the trip to Israel installed in Germany. But Israeli designed electronics and weapons systems are installed once the ships are in Israel, a process that takes several months. The German builders install structures as well as power connections and wiring so the Israeli-made equipment can be quickly installed. These weapons and electronics are Israeli designed and built, and contain a lot of tech that Israel does not share. This sometimes causes problems with foreign supplied ships and aircraft. For example, Israel was one of the first export customers to receive the American F-35 stealth fighter. Israel planned to install their own modifications to the complex software systems that give the F-35 unique capabilities. The Americans initially refused to give Israel access to the source code for that software so that modifications could be made in Israel by Israelis. The U.S. and Israel have a long and successful history of jointly developing new weapons systems and those deals usually involve sharing new tech with each other. The U.S. considered the F-35 a special case and it took months of negotiations before Israel was allowed to make its modifications to the software. Details of that deal were kept secret but the Israeli version installed in the unique Israeli F-35I were apparently shared with the United States. The F-35I was the first F-35 to operate in a combat zone (Syria) and use that tech against the most modern Russian air defense and EW (Electronic Warfare) systems. The U.S. apparently got access to the results of those encounters, which were successful and somewhat alarming for the Russians and Iran.
