Instructor(s): P. Jackson
Credit: 1

Herstoric opportunity for studying contemporary sculpture in the round, prints and paintings on paper or textiles while displayed in four L.A. area museums hosting concurrent Saar exhibitions. ALISON SAAR: Of Aether and Earthe, will serve as the inaugural exhibition for the new Benton Museum of Art at Pomona College, visually and historically grounding the course. Field trips also include visiting five public sculptures and two museum events featuring the artist. Saar (Scripps ‘78) has created an enduring figurative vocabulary melding innovative techniques and energy-repurposed vernacular and vintage materials. Historically situated exploration of key visual themes harnessed by the petit chainsaw-wielding artist include, figuring spiritual consciousness, aesthetic ecologies of the nude, HAIRstories as healing epistemologies, Ifa spirituality and Orisha iconographies; assemblage as African diasporan visual metaphor. Letter grade only.
