Betye Saar: In Service, A Version of Survival features fourteen mixed media assemblages, where the structural format for most is a vintage serving tray. These works confront and deconstruct derogatory black images, particularly the mammy icon. Since the 1970s, Saar has consistently returned to her original mission "to transform and empower negative images into positive information" and her characterizations of mammies and other servants promise to jolt viewers’ conceptions of black Americans and servitude.
