A prodigious body of work that has transformed perceptions of women’s art and collaborative venture is fully scrutinized in the first book to cover the entire scope of an astonishing and influential career. One of the most controversial artists of our time, Judy Chicago is most famous for her groundbreaking installations The Dinner Party, Birth Project, and Holocaust Project. While these works have been analyzed extensively from artistic and historical perspectives, this book’s in-depth discussion also embraces many of the artist’s lesser-known pieces. Using a great variety of techniques, from drawing, painting, and printmaking to needlework and sculpture, her search for a personal means of expression is examined through lavish illustrations and edifying text.
