Judy Chicago’s “Be No More,” a dry ice and flares experiential installation at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, the site of the original installation of The Dinner Party. This work is an iteration of the dry ice environments that Chicago began making in 1967 as a metaphor for a new reality.

Recently, Chicago’s atmospheres and smoke and pyrotechnic works have been revitalized by numerous commissions at museums worldwide. As is the case with much of Chicago’s work, it sometimes takes society and the art world a few decades to fully embrace the genius of her radically innovative works.
