Art Knowledge News, 03/03/2012
Sacramento, California.- The Crocker Art Museum will present a career-spanning exhibition of the work of artist and feminist Judy Chicago in “Surveying Judy Chicago: 1970–2010.” Chicago’s convention-shattering approach to provocative themes and diverse media is explored in this exhibit of 29 works. The exhibition will be on view at the Crocker from March 3rd through May 13th. This is the first traveling exhibition to include her glass sculpture. Judy Chicago has continuously brought her passion for social dialogue and artistry to bear on many issues. A test plate from “The Dinner Party, 1974–79” is included in this exhibition as are studies completed for “Birth Project, 1980–1985.” She has also made innovative use of both traditional and non-traditional media in works that highlight her conceptual and graphic talents, from lithographs to drawings, watercolors, and mixed-media paintings.
