‘Serious Moonlight’ brings together a selection of immersive installations by the American artist Betye Saar (b. 1926, Los Angeles). While Saar’s intimately scaled assemblages of the 1960s and 1970s are icons of Black feminist art, audiences have rarely had the opportunity to encounter the artist’s monumental installations — many of which have only been recently rediscovered and are exhibited here for the first time in decades. Highlighting Black identity and intersectional feminism within the broader context of the American West Coast and the United States, these installations offer visitors radical new worlds inspired by ritual and myth. With Serious Moonlight, 49 Nord 6 Est con- tinues its exploration of diasporic visual languages in order to question hegemonic Western canons and the narratives that underpin them.
