Through the Decades

Judy Chicago’s work has taken radically different forms throughout her long and prolific artistic career, although feminist and other human rights themes have long been at the center of the work, as has her commitment to the development of a feminist pedagogy for the teaching of art. The 1970s saw the creation of her masterwork, The Dinner Party; since then Chicago has continued to tackle major concerns of human history, such as the Holocaust, childbirth, and death.
