The Flowering: The Autobiography of Judy Chicago

The Flowering: The Autobiography of Judy Chicago


In this provocative and resonant autobiography, published ahead of a major retrospective exhibition and featuring a Foreword by Gloria Steinem, the celebrated artist and activist reflects on her extraordinary life and career, sharing her vision for making art that matters, from performance and installation—including the monumental, multi-media table laid for thirty-nine iconic women in The Dinner Party— to fiber arts in the groundbreaking Birth Project, painting and stained-glass work in the meticulously researched Holocaust Project, porcelain, glass, and bronze in the contemplative The End, and her latest genre-defying pyrotechnic Smoke Sculptures(™) captured on an app. After decades on the margins of the art world, which devalued her work for its feminist content, THE FLOWERING is an answer to and reflection upon her previous autobiographical writings, as well as a critically necessary update to her story of resilience. It will be a call to action for those who have supported her from the beginning and for a new generation.
