Born in 1939 in Chicago, she moved to Los Angeles in 1957 to attend UCLA art school, where she was graduated in 1962 Phi Beta Kappa. In 1964, she received her MA from UCLA in painting and sculpture. In 1966, Chicago's work "Rainbow Pickets" was shown in "Primary Structures," a major minimalist exhibition at the Jewish Museum. In 1970, Chicago founded the first Feminist Art program at California State University at Fresno. A full page ad in the October 1970 Artforum announced Chicago's name change from Gerowitz. The ad says she made the change to divest "herself of all names imposed upon her through male social dominance...".
Judy Chicago is most famous for her 1974-1979 work The Dinner Party. This work, in which hundreds of volunteers participated, has been housed since 2002 in the Brooklyn Museum of Art. It was donated to the museum by The Elizabeth A. Sackler Foundation. It is now permanently housed at the Brooklyn Museum within the Elizabeth A Sackler Center for Feminist Art which opened in March 2007. It is a homage to women's history in the form of a large triangular table with symbolic ceramic plates representing 39 famous women guests-of-honor. The work is intended as an elevation to heroic scale of the contributions of women in a way that has been excluded throughout history.

Judy Chicago (b. 1939) relates her experiences and struggles in the art world and fine arts academia up to the mid-1970s (this was first published in 1975). It isn't just her struggle, however -- it's also about women from that era who sought to be artists. Chicago relates her experiences with the feminist art movement, and it was illuminating to read this perspective as it was happening, rather than through the lens of the modern era. Lots to mull over -- I'd say there's been some improvement in attitudes since, but there's still a ways to go.

I strongly recommend this to every female artist. I wish I had read this sooner.

Judy Chicago really began the feminist art movement. Her artistic and historical scope was and is unprecedented. The Dinner Party first brought attention to hundreds upon hundreds of overlooked women ignored by history.

This book highlights the struggle of women artists to make careers for themselves in a male-dominated field/society. She seems brutally honest about herself and the relationship she has with her husband. I think things have changed a tad almost 35 plus years on, but the struggle nevertheless continues. Highlights the fact that our society tends to put a premium on what we accomplish versus what we might be able to make of ourselves.
