- 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 centrepiece 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.00Exhibition: National Museum of Women in the Arts, Washington D.C., USA (19.09.2019-20.01.2020).
