The Dinner Party: From Creation to Preservation

Cover
Merrell, 2007 - 308 Seiten
Judy Chicago's internationally acclaimed installation The Dinner Party is a monumental work of art conceived as a symbolic history of women in Western civilization. Strategically countering the traditional erasure of women's achievements, this epic work honors 1038 iconic, mythical, archetypal, and historical women. This, the most definitive book to be published on Chicago's masterwork, reveals the visual and intellectual scope of the installation more fully than ever before, supported by new photography, documentary images, and the artist's expanded research into the history of the women represented.
