Judy Chicago: A Retrospective

de Young Museum / San Francisco / Art

Judy Chicago. The feminist artist who “got tired of trying to be a guy.” The overnight sensation whose installation of 1979, The Dinner Party, set a table with plates inspired by the nether regions of famous women. Shunning the patriarchy yet demanding attention, Chicago believes that art should be “connected to real human feeling (and) embrace all people who are striving for alternatives in an increasingly dehumanized world.” While her “vagina china” from the controversial Dinner Party remains on display in Brooklyn, archival and preparatory material, along with more than 130 other pieces, will plunge viewers into Chicago’s powerful, psychedelic world—where women rule. —Ariella Paradise
