THE HOT LIST The 2021 Holiday Collection - DINE By Artspace Editors
NOVEMBER 9, 2021
ArtistJudy Chicagois best known for her 1979 work, The Dinner Party. This monumental piece – “an unruly icon of feminist art” as the New Yorker described it – is a triangular setting of tables, measuring 48 feet on each side, with female-inspired ceramics, typography and embroidery at each place setting and vast banners overhead. The work cemented Chicago’s reputation, but its sheer scale has plagued its existence, often preventing its display. Thankfully, Chicago’s work has also been reproduced at a far more manageable, gift-sized scale, here in The Goddess Trio. The feminine goddess has been a recurring motif and form in her work, and is here presented in three forms – a jumbo goddess candle, a lavender scented goddess figure soap and a goddess figure gold-plated pin. The pieces are made by Prospect, with their customary promise of “Meticulous craftsmanship, materials and manufacturing” in collectible objects produced in collaboration with leading artists. “Lighting this candle in your home, bathing in the lavender scent and pinning the goddess on your jacket before walking out the door elevates your own connection to the divine feminist in you and awakens your awareness to the times we are living in” they advise. “The future is female.”

Art gifts for the creative in your life
WALLPAPER. NOVEMBER 1, 2021.
As dinner party conversation starters go, Judy Chicago’s ‘Bigamy Hood’ dinner plate could be up there with the most gripping. Available from Prospect at $195 each, the bone china plate depicts one of the feminist art trailblazer’s earliest works, created in ‘macho’ automotive lacquer sprayed onto a car hood. Much like Chicago’s iconic installation The Dinner Party, Bigamy Hood was once greeted with derision, but now embodies her epic contribution to the evolution of feminist art. Art gifts also available from Prospect – the New York-based company known for top-tier art collaborations – are vibrant straws by Micha Kahn, and striking candles by Bonam Kim.

The preponderance of candle content sparked a full-blown craze (British Vogue proclaimed candle-making the “biggest trend of lockdown”) that, needless to say, is still going strong.

Candles, especially ones in unorthodox shapes and sizes, are easy fixes — in one fell swoop, they double as mood lighting and decorative design objects.

Stylish People Are Putting Plates on Walls—and We’re Here for It
March 24, 2021
Hanging plates on the wall is nothing new. In 1972, the New York Times declared in a headline “Decorative Plates—Not Fine Art, But They’re Good As Gold,” covering the fad of collectible dishware by the likes of Norman Rockwell, Charles Schulz, Salvador Dalí, and Andrew Wyeth. (Companies like Prospect NY and Artware Editions carry that torch today with their artist-designed dishware.)

Bonam Kim’s ‘HIM’ And ‘Hannah’ Candles Are Temporary Sculptures
CNMN Magazine. January 27, 2021
Most artists do need help getting the word out about their creations, painters have galleries, and Kim has the art e-commerce brand Prospect, another woman-founded company that helps artists create accessible design objects. Laura Currie created the brand in 2016 to help bridge the gap between young people who might have a taste for art but not the wallet, and artists who wanted to reach wider audiences beyond just collectors. Working with artists like Nir Hod, Judy Chicago, Katherine Bernhardt, and of course Kim, Currie helps bring art into the mainstream in a new way, beyond the sometimes intimidating bounds of the gallery world. In the case of Kim’s candles, these sculptures disrupt a tired home accessory and predictable decorating staple by giving it a flair of the avant garde.

GET The Night You Left Coasters
May 21, 2020
Apparently it’s not just ’80s fashion trends that are making a comeback.
For those who don’t want to set their premium cocktails down on just any coaster, Israeli artist Nir Hod transformed her oil-on-mirror The Night You Left series into stylish coasters reminiscent of a mirrored table at an ’80s nightclub. The sets come with options for different colored mirrors — black, gold, pink — all featuring digitally printed lines of blow. These coasters are a conversation starter, especially if your new girlfriend’s parents come over for dinner, but the deeper meaning behind the art is not a celebration of cocaine-charged dopamine spikes.

I’ve been really anxious to work with Katie, I’m a huge admirer, and just this past summer she had a show of hand-painted plates. She had shared a few different sketches, and I said, “Hey, we have to do something with these. Can we do something for your wedding?” They’re her designs, we just took them and had them manufactured on napkins."

Tell us about your first artist collaboration—what inspired it?
In 2015, I was working on a mural commission for the launch of South Street Seaport in Manhattan. Artist Baron Von Fancy was just emerging, and his tongue-in-cheek style was the perfect fit—a little edgy, visually captivating, tons of wit, with the potential to reach a wide audience. Not long before the launch, we proposed creating a T-shirt featuring Von Fancy's signature script. People went crazy for them and we sold out in a heartbeat. A few days later Prospect was born.

The artist, of course, is best known for her massive feminist art installation The Dinner Party, which features 39 hand-painted ceramic plates representing an equal number of famous women. Somehow, she’s never been asked to reproduce them.
Chicago was speaking at a dinner at Brooklyn’s City Point complex, with guests sitting around a triangular table that purposely evoked the iconic work. At each place setting was a bone china plate based on designs from The Dinner Party, released this week by the Prospect NY."
