Judy Chicago: Early Feminist Works
In 1970 Chicago set out to create a Feminist Art practice that would give authentic voice to women’s experiences and affirm the ways in which women are and always have been key contributors to human society and culture. As an educator, she pioneered Feminist Art programs at California State University, Fresno, and the California Institute of the Arts. Her own art of the early ’70s ranges from bold representations to abstract symbols of Feminist identity, including the iconic “Through the Flower” image and others which evolved from her Minimalist work.
