Judy Chicago | Roots of “The Dinner Party”: History in the Making | Brooklyn Museum

Her most influential and widely known work, The Dinner Party (1974–79) will be the subject of a major exhibition at the Brooklyn Museum from October 20, 2017 – March 4, 2018. The sweeping installation celebrates women’s achievements in Western culture in the form of a meticulously executed banquet table set for 39 mythical and historical women and honoring 999 others.
