Pioneering Feminist artist Judy Chicago exhibits unseen archival work

About

Star Cunts & other attractions will include suites of paintings and sculptures from the beginning of Chicago’s career as well as from her significant body of multidisciplinary art. The exhibition features the eponymous STAR CUNTS series (1969), a set of prismacolour and pastels on paper, plus sets of steel and acrylic dome sculptures - representative of the influence of minimalism on Chicago’s early style, but also indicative of the appropriation of materials that would later define her work.  Also on show for the first time are unseen porcelain test plates, which chronicle Chicago’s study of china painting in preparation for The DINNER PARTY the 1979 installation now permanently housed in the Elizabeth A. Sackler Center for Feminist Art at the Brooklyn Museum, where it is accounts for more than 20% of the museum’s visitor figures. In Janson & Janson’s publication A Basic History of Western Art, THE DINNER PARTY is credited as a “commentary on contemporary society, and use of so many different styles and periods announces the art of the 1980s, and art that still prevails today and has come to be called Post-Modernism.”
