Judy Chicago

Judy Chicago is an important American artist best known for The Dinner Party (1974 – 79), a feminist installation that is included in most standard texts about the development of 20th Century art.   She was a leading member of the 1970s Feminist Art Movement, which focused on establishing the value of women’s experiences within fine art practices.   She often uses a combination of media, geometric forms, and spectral colours in her work to communicate a sense of pride in the female body and spirit.
