Serpentine North Gallery Saturday 1 June 2024, 3pm Free

Chris Bayley, Associate Exhibitions Curator, leads a tour of Judy Chicago: Revelations.

Judy Chicago gained prominence in the late 1960s for making work from a woman-centered perspective, which challenged the male-dominated landscape of the art world. This exhibition, the artist’s largest solo presentation in a London institution, takes its name from an unpublished illuminated manuscript Chicago penned in the early 1970s whilst creating The Dinner Party (1974–79) – a monumental installation that symbolises the achievements of 1038 women, now permanently housed at the Brooklyn Museum, New York. To coincide with the exhibition, the manuscript has been published for the first time. It offers a radical retelling of history and a vision of a just and equitable world. Organised thematically around the manuscript’s chapters, the exhibition focuses on drawing – a medium Chicago has explored for over six decades.

BSL interpretation is available on request for all our Saturday Talks. Please get in touch at [email protected] should you require this.
