Over the past five decades, American feminist artist, Judy Chicago, has continually expanded our understanding of the role gender plays in the creation of art and the writing of art history. Her bold, innovative and often controversial installations, like The Dinner Party, The Birth Project, The Holocaust Project and her most recent focus on The EndDeath and Extinction, are evidence of the breadth and depth of her work.  In this course we will study Chicago’s art in the context of her new autobiography, The Flowering, in which she reviews her early work, brings us up to date, and explores what it means to live as an awake elder woman at a most difficult time in our human history. Two Saturdays: August 7 and 14 from 1 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. EST Online Class.
