Co-presented by O Cinema and Oolite Arts, this edition will feature a screening of “Betye Saar: Ready To Be a Warrior” at 11 a.m. on Sunday, April 3. The screening will be followed by a post-film discussion with Director and Producer Angela Robinson Witherspoon, Co-Producer, Cinematographer and Editor Abdul Malik Abbott, and Institute of Contemporary Art, Miami’s Assistant Curator, Amanda Morgan.

At age 94, Betye Saar is finally receiving the recognition she deserves for her career spanning the last six decades. Hailed as a pioneer for her collages and assemblage art, and influential in the Black Arts Movement, Saar is known for reclaiming and remixing black history. BETYE SAAR: Ready to be a Warrior chronicles the life of Saar and focuses on a period of time (2014-2021) where she received unprecedented recognition in the contemporary art world. Art has become the family business.
