From the Brooklyn Museum’s permanent display of Judy Chicago’s Dinner Party. A huge piece of work, many artists and thinkers involved. Here’s a bit about the climate for artists who were women at the time Chicago started thinking about this piece. If you click on the link on the left that says “place settings” you get to a page where you can look at each plate and tablecloth, and the part of the floor related to the artist. AND a boatload of history on the person and what the imagery means.
