Judy Chicago: Herstory - Jessica Silverman Gallery
On the occasion of Judy Chicago’s retrospective at the New Museum in New York, Jessica Silverman is delighted to share a website of available works on display in the exhibition. Curated by Massimiliano Gioni, “Judy Chicago: Herstory” spans the artist’s six-decade career and it runs until January 14, 2024.
Our website focuses on seven pivotal works. Some of the pieces are pioneering instances of feminist minimalism. Others foreshadow the forms of her famed Dinner Party. A couple of large-scale works revolutionize the art historical genre of the reclining nude. While some demonstrate the artist’s integration of folk idioms in her foray into Pop art. Whatever the era, Chicago’s work has been fearless in its aesthetic experimentation and resolute in its pursuit of women’s freedom.
