Body Politics: The Female Image in Luba Art and the Sculpture of Alison Saar

Body Politics: The Female Image in Luba Art and the Sculpture of Alison Saar

2000

Featuring magnificent sculptures by artist Alison Saar and exemplary Luba works of art from central Africa, this major exhibition explored the dynamic relationships between the female form in Luba art and in the contemporary sculpture of the renowned, Los Angeles-based artist. Saar’s compelling depictions of women and Luba royal emblems depicting female images are coincident in theme and spirit and their juxtaposition enhances an understanding of both. This conversation of forms, comprising 86 forms, touched on notions of the female body as a locus of identity, politics, and spirituality.
