Judy Chicago (born in 1939, Chicago, USA; lives and works in New Mexico, USA) is an artist, educator, the author of fifteen books and humanist. She considers her work and life as models for an enlarged definition of art, an expanded role for the artist and women’s right to freedom of expression. Judy is most well-known for her role in creating a feminist art and art education program in California during the early 1970s and for her monumental work The Dinner Party (1974–1979).
Note: Judy Chicago’s work for the 2022 Biennial – A Tribute to Toronto – will take place on June 4, 2022 at 8pm. For the most up-to-date information, visit the Events page.
