Some 40 years after she delivered a feminist lecture at Pomona College in 1970, artist Judy Chicago – who would become famous for her seminal ’79 work “The Dinner Party” -returned to Pomona to talk to her younger self in a funny, contemplative lecture-performance that considers how her (and our) notions of what it means to be a woman artist have changed over the decades.
That was in 2011. Now 74 and working in Los Angeles, Chicago will be the subject of a retrospective of her early work in April at the Brooklyn Museum.
Watch the video (be patient – Chicago gets on a roll); then share your thoughts in the comments. What rings true?
