After six decades of professional practice, Judy Chicago had her first retrospective at the de Young Museum in San Francisco, brilliantly curated by Claudia Schmuckli. This exhibition finally achieved Chicago’s goal of having the body of her art emerge from the shadow of The Dinner Party which – until then, had defined her career. The reviews were rapturous, stressing what a ‘revelation’ it was to see the range of subject matter and technique that has defined her journey as an artist. One month before the retrospective, Thames and Hudson published The Flowering, Chicago’s definitive autobiography with a Forward by Gloria Steinem. Together, these events marked a turning point in the way in which Judy Chicago’s work is perceived.
