Biographical Note

Judy Chicago (1939-) is a noted feminist artist, author, and educator. She was born in Chicago as Judy Cohen, but later changed her name in protest of the male social dominance reflected by traditional naming practices. Chicago received her bachelor of art degree in 1962 and her master of art degree in 1964, both from the University of California, Los Angeles. She has also been granted five honorary doctoral degrees, three in fine arts and two in humane letters. She currently resides in Belen, New Mexico. Chicago pioneered a feminist approach to art and art education at California State University, Fresno, in the early 1970s. She then brought her program to Cal-Arts, where she team-taught with Miriam Schapiro, producing with their students the ground-breaking Womanhouse project. In 1974, Chicago turned her attention to the subject of women's history to create her most well-known work, The Dinner Party, which was executed between 1974 and 1979 with the participation of hundreds of volunteers. Other artwork Chicago produced over the next several decades includes: Birth Project; PowerPlay; The Holocaust Project: From Darkness into Light; Resolutions: A Stitch in Time; If Women Ruled the World; and Judy Chicago Tapestries Woven by Audrey Cowan. Chicago has also worked with her husband, photographer Donald Woodman, to develop various community and inter-institutional art projects. Her art is marked by an attention to process, collaboration, and a feminist analytical viewpoint. Her work has been exhibited in the United States, Canada, Europe, Asia, Australia, and New Zealand, and featured in international publications as well. In 1999, Chicago returned to teaching with a succession of appointments at various institutions around the United States, including: Indiana University, Bloomington; Duke University; University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill; Western Kentucky University; and Vanderbilt University. Chicago is the author of numerous books, including two autobiographies:  Through the Flower: My Struggle as a Woman Artist, 1975, and  Beyond the Flower: The Autobiography of a Feminist Artist, 1996. She has also received many honors, from National Endowment of the Arts grants in 1976 and 1977 to the Visionary Woman Award from the Moore College of Art and Design in 2004 and the 38th Governor's Award for Excellence from New Mexico in 2011.
