Judy Chicago’s original concept for The Dinner Party was multi-faceted in that her goal was to introduce the richness of women’s heritage into the culture in three ways; a monumental work of art, a book and a film because she had discovered so much unknown information. The Dinner Party – which has been the subject of countless books and articles – is now permanently housed in the Elizabeth A. Sackler Center for Feminist Art at the Brooklyn Museum where it draws thousands of visitors from all over the globe.

Judy Chicago’s masterpiece The Dinner Party is a monumental work of art conceived as a symbolic history of women in Western civilization. Strategically countering the traditional erasure of women’s achievements, The Dinner Party honours 1038 iconic, mythical, archetypal and historical women.

When Judy Chicago’s The Dinner Party opened on March 14, 1979, at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, no one had ever seen anything like it.

It was theatrical, audacious and definitively feminist: a work of stark symbolism and detailed scholarship, of elaborate ceramics and needlework that also nodded to the traditional amateurism of those forms, a communal project that was the realization of one woman’s uncompromisingly grand vision, inviting both awe and identification. It caused an immediate sensation. But that was only the beginning of its tumultuous life.

Widely regarded as the first epic feminist artwork, it functions as a symbolic history of women in civilization. There are 39 elaborate place settings arranged along a triangular table for 39 mythical and historical famous women. Sacajawea, Sojourner Truth, Eleanor of Aquitaine, Empress Theodora of Byzantium, Virginia Woolf, Susan B. Anthony, and Georgia O'Keeffe are among the symbolic guests.

Describes and illustrates a multimedia exhibit that celebrates the achievements of more than one thousand women in Western culture, discussing the exhibit's origin and aesthetic and historical meaning

Beautiful in every way. When I saw the Dinner Party at the Brooklyn Museum, I was overwhelmed. I could have spent a week there absorbing this stupendous work of art and felt sorry to leave. With this book I have the next best thing to being there in person.

This is an incredible book and a wonderful women's history resource. It talks about goddesses, women in history, etc. as well as the art project itself. The project made vulva plates for different women, some real women, some fictional, but things like a frilly Victorian pink lace 3D vulva for Emily Dickinson upset some...and caused this artwork to be banned many places. The book talks about the women's names on the tiles that make up the floor, about the runners which were hand embroidered for the display, etc. This is a book about women and art, women's history, and more! I highly recommend this book for all women.

Judy Chicago; with enjoyment I've followed her art and her life story for a number of years. Am glad to have this book.

And this is it-- a complete overview of the event that was the dinner party...Judy Chicago's masterwork. If you never got the opportunity to see it, this volume will help show you what you missed out on, and if you did see it, this will help you remember all the glorious work that made it the homage to our foremothers that it was.

I was able to visit the exhibit when it was in Boston so many years ago (1980). I was amazed at what they had done and the scope of the project. I LOVED how Judy Chicago wanted to "celebrate" women in history and in such a unique way. I have nothing but good things to say about this book, but the exhibit was extraordinary!

This is a veritable resource of women who have been written out of history by our male-dominated cultures of the west. And to have photographs of the in estimable The Dinner Party warms the heart of any sensitive person. One of the most seminal art creations of the twentieth century, it is gratifying to have it finally out of storage and on view at the Brooklyn Museum of Art. Judy Chicago has provided a centuries overdue feminine history.

I was blown away with "the Dinner Party" at the Brooklyn Museum! There is so much to take in about this complicated exhibit and I wanted to know more about the artist's work. Imagine my disappointment when I go to the museum gift shop and they do not have a hard bound book about it! So, after getting back to my iPad that evening, I went to Amazon and found this book. It is exactly what I was looking for!
I used to own this book and gave it away, only to wish years later that I had it. There's no more comprehensive history of women artists than what is contained in Judy Chicago's works. Together with Embroidering Our Heritage: The Dinner Party Needlework, these books are all I need.
