I made a voyage to the Brooklyn Museum especially for this work, I got to see some great Murakami as well, But, "NO PHOTOS, SIR" Luckily the more important work, this piece by Judy C, I was able to capture...enjoy. (from Wikipedia) Judy Chicago, the instigator and co-ordinator of the project, stated that its purpose was to "end the ongoing cycle of omission in which women were written out of the historical record." The table is triangular and measures forty-eight feet on each side. Each place setting features a placemat with the woman's name and artworks relating to her life, with a napkin, utensils, a glass or goblet, and a plate. Many of the plates feature a butterfly or flower-like sculpture as a vulva symbol. A collaborative effort of many female artists, The Dinner Party celebrates traditional female accomplishments such as textile arts (weaving, embroidery, sewing) and china painting, which have been framed as craft or domestic art, as opposed to the more culturally valued, male dominated fine arts. The white floor of triangular porcelain tiles is inscribed with the names of a further 999 notable women. The Dinner Party was donated by the Elizabeth A. Sackler Foundation to the Brooklyn Museum, where it is now permanently housed within the Elizabeth A. Sackler Center for Feminist Art, which opened in March 2007. "The Dinner Party elevates female achievement in Western history to a heroic scale traditionally reserved for men." Read more about it!! http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Dinner_Party [read more]
