The New York Times is reporting that the Museum of Modern Art, set to close this summer for reinstallation, will reopen in October with exhibitions on Latin-American Art, Pope.L, and Betye Saar.

"Betye Saar: The Legends of Black Girl's Window" will be a focus exhibition centering on the 1969 assemblage, drawn mainly from the MoMA collection.

LACMA's "Betye Saar: Call and Response," a full retrospective curated by Carol S. Eliel, will be running simultaneously (Sep. 2019–Feb. 2020).

That's unique bicoastal recognition for Saar (described by the NYT as an artist "whose collages and assemblages have often flown under the radar").
