Judy Chicago’s masterpiece The Dinner Party is a monumental work of art conceived as a symbolic history of women in Western civilization. Strategically countering the traditional erasure of women’s achievements, this epic installation honours 1038 iconic, mythical, archetypal and historical women. This, the most definitive book to be published on Chicago’s masterwork, reveals more fully than ever before the art and the artist’s expanded research into the rich history embodied in the installation. In lively contextualizing sections, Chicago discusses the creative genesis of The Dinner Party, the technical processes involved, and the work’s early often hostile reception by the art world, and its subsequent preservation and permanent exhibition.

The world's most famous and controversial work of feminist art, Judy Chicago's Dinner Party has found a permanent home some 30 years after its creation in the Brooklyn Museum's new Elizabeth A. Sackler Center for Feminist Art. Chicago celebrates in a sumptuous and comprehensive volume dedicated to her radical and extraordinarily crafted sculptural installation, telling the compelling story of its five-year collaborative creation, phenomenal popularity with the public, and vicious critical condemnation. Long committed to making socially conscious art, Chicago marvels over how much has changed in the field of women's history since the 1960s, when she began researching women's lives. Never one to stint on hard work, or miss the opportunity to educate people, Chicago presents brief and vivid updated biographies of the 39 women represented at the triangular table with elaborate ceramic plates and beautifully embroidered runners and the 999 women whose names appear in the porcelain-tiled Heritage Floor. Gorgeous new photographs by Woodman, Chicago's husband, offer stunning close-ups. For more on Chicago and her work, see Gail Levin's biography, Becoming Judy Chicago (2007). Donna Seaman
