As the first major monograph on the feminist artist Judy Chicago in nineteen years, this fully illustrated volume provides fresh perspectives by leading scholars. Many people know her famed The Dinner Party, installed as the center piece of the Sackler Center for Feminist Art at the Brooklyn Museum, but few know her other prescient bodies of work - on sex, birth, death, violence, the natural world, and more. Featuring her newest work, The End, as well as major examples from throughout her career, this fascinating, elegantly designed book offers a new examination of Chicago's wide-ranging artistic expression and powerful voice. The book is published on the occasion of the artist's eightieth birthday and an exhibition of new work at the National Museum of Women in the Arts, as well as the announcement of the Judy Chicago online archival portal.

About Judy Chicago

The Trailblazer.

You may know her as a key player in the feminist movement, but Judy Chicago is much, much more. Think innovators and early adopters – then go one step earlier, and you’ll find Chicago. She is a pioneer who sees art as language. And like any language, she believes art can be learned, it must be used and maintained, and it must evolve. Chicago is an artist, author of 14 books, and educator whose work shouts out for women’s rights to freedom of expression. She founded a feminist art and art education program in California in the early 1970s, then created ‘The Dinner Party’: an epic installation now housed at the Elizabeth A. Sackler Center for Feminist Art at New York’s Brooklyn Museum. From 1974 to 1979, she painstakingly arranged the 39 place settings that make up the artwork – places for prehistoric goddesses, women in Christianity and the Reformation, and early revolutionaries such as Virginia Woolf and Georgia O’Keeffe. It’s the ultimate can’t-miss dinner party, and Judy Chicago is the ultimate powerhouse host.
