Judy Chicago: Making Advances

    November 10-December 23, 2022

    Jessica Silverman is pleased to announce “Judy Chicago: Making Advances”, a solo exhibition featuring a series of new minimalist sculptures alongside historical drawings that explore color as a means of transformation and perceptual awakening, on view from November 10 to December 23, 2022. Chicago began her exploration of color in the 1960s within a reduced formal vocabulary of geometric shapes. In doing so, she recast the concerns of minimalism as perceptual matters of selfhood and feminist subjectivity that still inform her practice today.

    Judy Chicago (b. 1939, Chicago) has made an irrevocable impact on art history. She is best known for The Dinner Party, which is on permanent display at the Brooklyn Museum in New York. She has work in the collections of the British Museum and Tate, London; Moderna Museet, Stockholm; The Metropolitan Museum of Art, NY; National Gallery, Washington D.C.; LACMA, Los Angeles; MOCA Los Angeles; Hammer Museum, Los Angeles; Getty Trust and Getty Research Institute, Los Angeles; SFMOMA, San Francisco; Art Institute of Chicago, and over 25 university art museums. In 2023, Chicago will have a major retrospective at a New York museum. She has enjoyed recent museum surveys at the de Young Museum, San Francisco; the National Museum of Women in the Arts, Washington, D.C. and ICA Miami. Chicago’s work has been exhibited in a broad range of major thematic group shows such as “Pacific Standard Time: Made in LA” at the Hammer Museum, Los Angeles; “Ends of the Earth” at Haus der Kunst, Berlin and “The World Goes Pop” at Tate Modern, London. Chicago lives and works in Belen, NM and is represented by Jessica Silverman, San Francisco and Jeffrey Deitch.
