Judy Chicago is one of the most important artists of this century. New Mexico has been the home of some of the most compelling women artists of all time, including well-known names like Georgia O’Keeffe, Agnes Martin, Susan Rothenberg, Linda Benglis, and Agnes Pelton. Chicago has undoubtedly carved out her place in art history, as deeply or more so, than the artists listed above. Her “Dinner Party” is the quintessential work of Feminist Art, and is the centerpiece of the Gallery of Feminist Art at the Brooklyn Museum. A major exhibition of Chicago’s works opened at the Miami Institute of Contemporary Art in 2018, and numerous books and museum exhibitions document her long and important role in contemporary art.

Major museums featuring Judy Chicago’s works include The Museum of Modern Art, The Brooklyn Museum, San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, Penn State University Art Museum, Museum of Contemporary Art in Chicago, National Museum of Women in the Arts, and more.
