Judy Chicago's artwork includes paintings, sculptures, installations amongst a range of other techniques.
The Dinner Party
Judy Chicago's artwork The Dinner Party (1974 - 1979), now housed at the Elizabeth A. Sackler Center for Feminist Art in the Brooklyn Museum, New York, is one of the most significant works in feminist art history. Why is this particular Judy Chicago feminist art piece so striking, you ask? It's an epic feminist artwork that sees 39 place settings around a triangular table set to honour 39 famous fictitious and historical women. The place settings also included abstract representations of vaginas for the women at the table. Needless to say, critics had a lot to express about Judy Chicago's feminist art. Nonetheless, The Dinner Party turned out to be very popular with the general public and its feminist message really captivated her audience.
