Judy Chicago interviewed by Celeste Wesson
PRA Archive #: 

Judy Chicago, pioneering feminist artist who created the first women's art program in Fresno, CA, is interviewed by Celeste Wesson concerning Chicago's upcoming book on a community art project called "The Dinner Party." Chicago gives the background to her Dinner Party project, her hopes for its touring, how it is presented by the actual exhibit (a triangle with names of women in history), the art, a book, and a film. She also discusses how she works with others: being "real", self empowerment, feminism. Chicago's autobiography is "Through the Flower," where she speaks of her desire to develop a new environment for women artists. She has worked on her present project, The Dinner Party, since 1974. She is co-founder of the Feminist Studio Workshop and the Women's Building in Los Angeles.
