The perfect The Dinner Party bundle - Amazon Dinner Plate + The Dinner Party: Restoring Women to History by Judy Chicago

Amazon Dinner Plate

Amazon societies circa the second and third millennia were egalitarian, democratic, and generally peaceable – all the qualities you’d hope for in a dinner guest. Taken from Judy Chicago’s ‘The Dinner Party’, this design features detailed decorative patterns of the Amazons: a white egg, red crescent, and black stone which join to form a mythical warrior woman. They are accompanied by metallic breastplates, worn by Amazons in battle. While upraised double axes – or ‘labyris’ – used in felling trees, clearing land, and in worshipping the Goddess adorn the sides.  

 The Dinner Party: Restoring Women to History

Published to coincide with Chicago’s 75th birthday and the nationwide retrospective of her work,”The Dinner Party: Restoring Women to History” will be the only book in print representing this milestone work. Contains specially commissioned photography throughout and two essays by Chicago, along with essays by art historian Frances Borzello and historian Jane Gerhard, plus a foreword from museum director Arnold Lehman.

Hardcover, 288 pages

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.
