"...among the finest American sculptors working today...it’s hard to think of any recent art more salient right now." — Los Angeles Times


Pasadena, CA—Armory Center for the Arts and The Benton Museum of Art at Pomona College in Claremont, CA are pleased to announce the largest museum survey to date of the work of artist Alison Saar. Alison Saar: Of Aether and Earthe opens Friday, July 16 through Sunday, December 12, 2021 at the Armory, and is open now and runs through Sunday, December 19 at the Benton. It includes 29 of the artist’s multi-media and mixed installation works in one exhibition installed across the two venues. This exhibition spans the broad spectrum of Saar’s career, from her sculptures of the early 1980s to a new installation, Hygiea, to be unveiled at the Armory and the large-scale, site-specific commission Imbue, installed at the Benton in the summer of 2020. Both venues require an appointment to view the exhibition; appointments to the Armory may be made here and to the Benton here. Admission is free.

The Armory is excited to open our doors and welcome you back for a safe, socially distanced, engaging art experience with the exhibition Alison Saar: Of Aether and Earthe. The Armory and the Benton Museum of Art at Pomona College in Claremont have partnered to present an exhibition of Saar’s work connected to myths and archetypes, invisible bodies and hidden histories, and timeless paradigms of grounding and transformation.

Both venues require an appointment to view the exhibition. Armory reservations are available below. Benton reservations can be made here. Admission is free at both venues.
