BIOGRAPHY

Judy Chicago is an artist, writer and activist whose work has set the agenda for women's art over the past five decades. A pioneering force who came to prominence during the late 1960's and early 1970's, she helped re-shape the male-dominated art landscape by creating innovative work from a woman's perspective - reacting to social and political injustice during revolutionary times.

Her art and her ideas continue to exert a palpable influence on generations of women artists who came after her. In 2011, her contribution was recognised and in some ways rediscovered during Pacific Standard Time, the California-wide celebration of the history of the L.A. Art Scene which saw sixty cultural institutions collaborate in one six-month long initiative (pacificstandardtime.org/) and featured work across various media by Judy Chicago. The artist is widely represented in museums and public collections worldwide.
