Catalogue Note

“While Judy Chicago is best known as a pioneering feminist artist, the first decade of her artistic production is among the most complex, interesting, and unknown periods of her career...Prior to developing the lexicon of vaginal or ‘core’ imagery that was to occupy her for most of the 1970s, Chicago’s content was about testing the limits of color through self-designed diagrams, systems and spatial patterning...Chicago’s production during the late 1960s and early 1970s represents a passionate and original pursuit of the experiential nature of color, transformation, and visual perception.”
