A propos de ce titre

Synopsis :

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.

About the Author:

Judy Chicago is a world-renowned artist, author and educator. Her major installations The Dinner Party, the Birth Project, the Holocaust Project and Resolutions have been exhibited worldwide: The Dinner Party alone has attracted more than one million viewers.
