The Revelations of Judy Chicago

The Revelations of Judy Chicago
#Exhibitions

Judy Chicago has contested the absence and erasure of women in the Western cultural canon over the course of her long artistic career, developing a distinctive visual language that gave visibility to their experiences. An artistic practice that has given her great notoriety since the 1960s thanks to works that offered a woman-centered perspective and which still today challenge a male-dominated cultural landscape. This exhibition, the artist's largest solo presentation in a London institution, takes its name from an unpublished manuscript written in Chicago in the early 1970s during the creation of The Dinner Party (1974-1979), a monumental work symbolizing the achievements of 1038 women, which is part of the permanent collection of the Brooklyn Museum in New York. Tracing the arc of the artist's career, the exhibition brings together archival and previously unseen works, early abstract and minimalist works from the 1960s and 1970s, a video installation of footage of her site-specific performances that used colored smoke and fireworks, preparatory studies relating to major projects and sketchbooks that reveal her creative process and her research lasting over 60 years on these topics.
