History in the Making

Published by Salon 94.
Edited by David Colman. Introduction by Anne Pasternak. Text by Jeanne Greenberg Rohatyn. Interviews by Carmen Hermo.

Since the 1970s, Judy Chicago (born 1939) has been a pioneer in the development of feminism as an artistic movement and an educational project that endeavors to restore women’s place in history. Her most influential and widely known work is the sweeping installation The Dinner Party (1974–79), celebrating women’s achievements in Western culture in the form of a meticulously executed banquet table set for 39 mythical and historical women and honoring 999 others. One of the most important artworks of the 20th century, upon its public debut in 1979 it immediately became an icon of feminist art.

Roots of the Dinner Party was published for the first museum exhibition to examine Chicago’s evolving plans for The Dinner Party in depth, detailing its development as a multilayered artwork, a triumph of community art-making and a testament to the power of historical revisionism.

Judy Chicago: DefloweredJudy Chicago: Deflowered

Published by Nye+Brown/Foundation 20 21.
Edited by Katherine Chan. Introduction by Tim Nye, Lexi Brown. Text by Saul Ostrow. Interview by Lucy Lippard.

Before she coined the term “feminist art” and produced the movement’s most iconic work, “The Dinner Party,” Judy Chicago (born 1939) was living in Los Angeles and making work partly inspired by the city’s “Finish Fetish” and “Light and Space” schools--serial abstract pieces characterized by throbbing color, logo-like geometricism and slick production values. Unlike the sculpture of her male Los Angeles contemporaries, however, Chicago’s early sculptures and paintings reveled in bodily--specifically genital--references that distanced her from their concerns and instead began to define the possibilities of a new feminist art. This phase in Chicago’s career, sometimes described as her “Minimal Period,” produced several innovative series: the Hood paintings on Chevy car hoods, which featured heavily stylized vaginas and penises in brightly colored mirrored patterns; abstract sculptural “game boards” that riffed on children’s games and building blocks; several series of small, iridescent acrylic domes arranged in groups of three; and the Flesh Gardens and Fresno Fan series of sprayed acrylic lacquer on acrylic and Prismacolor on paper. Many of these early works exhibit Chicago’s early technical mastery (she attended auto body school and apprenticed with boat workers and pyro-technicians after her graduate student days at UCLA). Spanning the years between 1961 and 1973, Judy Chicago: Deflowered is the first to gather and examine these seminal early works. It includes a DVD of three of her Atmosphere performances, which also date from this time.
