Alison Saar: STILL . . .
This is a solo exhibition of new work by Alison Saar. Saar's sculptures explore the role of women, African-American history, and African religious traditions. Her sculpture uses the history and associations of her materials, everyday experience, African art and practice, Greek mythology, and the stark sculptural tradition of German Expressionism to create work that has a primal intensity that abounds in cultural and historic references, but doesn't depend on them for blunt visual power.
