Judy Chicago bags Dior for her next Dinner Party

Must read

The feminist artist Judy Chicago has just launched her new exhibition at London’s Serpentine Gallery, and it’s all thanks to the goodwill of Dior. The French heritage house is the official partner for Judy Chicago: Revelations, the first major exhibition of the US artist’s work in London, and one that also includes some never before seen work. Accompanying the exhibition is a book, also called Revelations, which is described as “the work that Judy Chicago believed would never be published: a radical retelling of human history in the form of an illuminated manuscript, recovering stories of women that society sought to erase.” Drawing on research surrounding Goddess circles, and formulated around the same time as her celebrated installation The Dinner Party, the book and new exhibition unveils a fundamental new chapter of Chicago’s career.
