First Wednesday Art Talk
Judy Chicago: A Retrospective
FAMSF Docent Speaker: Victoria Kirby
Join us for a celebration of the life and work of pioneering feminist artist, Judy Chicago, who rose to international prominence with her landmark installation The Dinner Party, which was first exhibited in San Francisco in 1979.
Judy Chicago: A Retrospective is the first exhibition to offer a comprehensive overview of the artist’s entire career. This talk will explore Chicago’s full body of work, from her early forays into minimalism to her current work that addresses mortality and environmental issues.
This exhibition is organized on the heels of the fortieth anniversary of the first showing of The Dinner Party in San Francisco and in conjunction with the 100th anniversary of women’s right to vote in the United States.
It is a fitting tribute to an artist who has spent a lifetime fighting for social justice and female expression.
