Throughout her celebrated career, pioneering artist Judy Chicago has tackled a series of subjects that are either taboo or absent in the art historical discourse, usually decades before these subjects have been addressed by other artists. These include menstruation (the Menstruation Bathroom); women’s history (The Dinner Party), birth (the Birth Project), the construct of masculinity (PowerPlay), the Holocaust (the Holocaust Project) and inter-species relationships (KIttyCity). She has also worked in diverse mediums; painting, sculpture, needlework, porcelain, fireworks and, more recently, glass.
