Judy Chicago, Artist, New Mexico Jeffrey Deitch, Art Dealer and Curator, New York
Judy Chicago is a leading Feminist artist, writer, and educator. Her famous collective work The Dinner Party (1974–79) is permanently installed at the Elizabeth A. Sackler Center for Feminist Art at the Brooklyn Museum, New York. Chicago pioneered Feminist art and art education through a unique program for women at California State University, Fresno, a pedagogical approach that she has continued to develop over the years. She has exhibited worldwide and is the author of numerous books. Her feminist and humanist work fights against injustices to all living beings and stands as impactful now as it was five decades ago. During this talk, Chicago discusses her artistic practice, what it means to be a feminist and where we stand now in the struggle for gender equality and the recognition of female artists.
