Summary Betye Saar (born 1926) is a legend. For 60 years, she has created powerful artworks that question traditional roles and representations of African Americans and women in the US, as well as deeply personal works about her family history and spirituality. 'Betye Saar: Still Tickin"' considers the breadth of the artist's career and its key themes. To contextualize Saar's works, this volume includes writings by the artist from the 1970s to the present day as well as a recent interview with Saar in which she discusses her artistic practice and her views on history, including the current debate about police violence in the US. "My art becomes an explorer, a tracer of forgotten tribes, a seeker of sanctified visions," explains Saar. "These works are what I leave behind."
