About Her Exhibition

Women & Their Work was proud to have welcomed Betye Saar and her work to Austin in 1996 for her solo exhibition, Personal Icons. In her work, Saar investigated spirituality in all of its forms. She reused and recontextualized spiritual icons and decorative patterns and asked the viewer what it meant to perceive and be perceived.
