Women and art : contested territory by Judy Chicago( Book )

27 editions published between 1999 and 2004 in English and German and held by 1,089 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Over the centuries, male artists and critics have laid claim to a gender monopoly on artistic 'greatness'. Yet, throughout history, many female artists have produced art of great power and accomplishment despite widespread hostility and practical obstacles. Some of these artists have received critical recognition, many more have been consigned to obscurity. One far-reaching consequence of this has been that some of the most famous images of women have been produced by male artists with no direct knowledge of the female experience. Wave upon wave of art has depicted women as sexually precocious children, idealized icons of beauty, dewy-eyed pillars of domesticity or fearful hags; only rarely have audiences been offered a female artist's perspective on women's lives."--Jacket

Judy Chicago : an American vision by Edward Lucie-Smith( Book )

8 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 847 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Judy Chicago's installations, such as The Dinner Party, the Birth Project, and the Holocaust Project, have transformed perceptions of women's art and collaborative ventures, while her employment of an enormous variety of techniques, from drawing and printmaking to needlework and pyrotechnics, has cemented her reputation as a true innovator." "Chicago's search for a personal means of expression has been contemporaneous with the growth of feminist consciousness, and the story of her development as a woman artist and a feminist is a vivid journey through contemporary American culture and society."--Jacket
The dinner party : from creation to preservation by Judy Chicago( Book )

12 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 760 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Judy Chicago's internationally acclaimed installation The Dinner Party is a monumental work of art conceived as a symbolic history of women in Western civilization. Strategically countering the traditional erasure of women's achievements, this epic work honors 1038 iconic, mythical, archetypal, and historical women. This, the most definitive book to be published on Chicago's masterwork, reveals the visual and intellectual scope of the installation more fully than ever before, supported by new photography, documentary images, and the artist's expanded research into the history of the women represented. Chicago begins by discussing the creative genesis of The Dinner Party, the dynamism of her collaborative approach to art-making, and the technical processes involved. Mirroring the structure of the installation, the book then divides into three beautifully illustrated "wings," or sections, covering from prehistory to the twentieth century. These explore the remarkable lives of the thirty-nine women symbolically represented as "guests of honor" at The Dinner Party, and of the 999 other women honored in the work. To conclude, Chicago reflects on the work's early--often hostile--reception in the art world and the political arena, as well as the subsequent, decades-long struggle for its preservation and permanent exhibition. At the heart of The Dinner Party is the belief that, by understanding the legacy of women's achievements, women's perceptions of themselves can be transformed. This definitive accompaniment to Chicago's installation continues its purpose and introduces the work to a new generation interested in the relationship between art, culture, and gender politics." -- Publisher's description
The dinner party by Judy Chicago( Book )

12 editions published in 1996 in English and Undetermined and held by 629 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"When Judy Chicago's multimedia exhibit The Dinner Party opened in the late 1970s, it was almost as shocking to the art world and to society at large as the first exhibit of Impressionists nearly a century before. And like that art, it stretched the limits of artistic vision and expression, soon becoming a landmark in art history. In this new work, the artist takes you on a personal tour of The Dinner Party, discussing it genesis, aesthetic and historical meaning, now and for the future. Many new illustrations highlight this account, which celebrates the work's reemergence in an exhibition at the UCLA/Armand Hammer Museum and Cultural Center in Los Angeles."--[book jacket]

Politics of study by Sidsel Meineche Hansen( Book )

6 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 84 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Universities and art schools alike have been subjected to the pressure of recent austerity politics and the ongoing attempt to transform higher education according to the demands of reigning neoliberals. In this context, it is urgent to conceive of alternative frameworks and methodologies of study--whether within, outside or at the margins of academic institutions.0This book examines the current interest in education through a series of conversations with artists, theorists, activists and educators--including Suhail Malik, Brian Holmes, Ruth Sonderegger, Gerald Raunig, Judy Chicago, Gal Kirn, Mohammad Salemy, Melissa Gordon, Marina Vishmidt and Andrea Fraser--who are all actively involved in developing new models of study. Ranging from self-organized learning to critical teaching methodologies, the alternatives gathered here offer a resource for those interested in the renewed politicization of education, new modes of knowledge production and teaching methodologies
