    The work of Alex Israel is deeply entwined with his hometown of Los Angeles. The artist creates art that riffs on Hollywood culture and the cult of celebrity. His first major body of work consisted of rented studio props, transformed into readymades by their placement in the gallery—some blatantly obvious in their artificiality. He gave celebrities the same treatment in the video series “As It Lays”, video portraits based on campy TV talk shows.

Alison Saar & Sarah Lewis

Alison Saar Informed by artistic traditions from the Americas to Africa and beyond, and by her mixed racial upbringing, Alison Saar fuses her paradoxical responses to the black-and-white delineations of political and social forces into a powerful, visual, and kinesthetic tension. She uses the history and associations of her materials, everyday experience, African art and ritual, Greek mythology, and the stark sculptural tradition of German Expressionism to infuse her work with a primal intensity that challenges cultural and historic references and stereotypes. STILL ... gathers together for the first time four never-exhibited works made during a residency at Pilchuck Glass School in Seattle with six new bronze and mixed-media sculptures. Saar has achieved broad recognition for her studio and public art throughout the country. Her work is held in many collections including the Museum of Modern Art, Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden, and Metropolitan Museum of Art; and she has major public art works in Los Angeles, New York and Chicago. She has received numerous prestigious awards from the Guggenheim Foundation, Anonymous Was a Woman, and the National Endowment for the Arts. Ms. Saar received her MFA in 1981 from Otis College of Art and Design.

Sarah Lewis Scholar, writer, and curator Sarah Lewis is currently finishing her book, RISE, a book that draws on her work in the arts and expands into sports, business, psychology, sociology, and science. Selected for Oprah’s 2010 “Power List,” and included as a member of President Obama’s Arts Policy Committee, her writing has been published widely. Her Yale dissertation on Frederick Douglass, The Circassian Beauties and American Racial Formation, is now under contract with Harvard University Press (2014 release). Ms. Lewis has been an active curator, holding positions at both the Tate Modern and the Museum of Modern Art. She was also selected to be the Co-Curator of the 2010 SITE Santa Fe Biennial. She sits on the boards of the Harvard University Alumni Association, the CUNY Graduate Center, the Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts, and the Brearley School, and she is on the Art Advisory Committee of Madison Square Park. She received a B.A. from Harvard University, magna cum laude, an M.Phil. from Oxford University with Distinction as a British Marshall Scholar, and will receive a Ph.D. from Yale University in 2012. She is on faculty at Yale University, School of Art in the M.F.A. program.
