JUDY CHICAGO: THE BIRTH PROJECT FROM NEW MEXICO COLLECTIONS

The Harwood Museum of Art
Judy Chicago was born in 1939 in Chicago, Illinois. She is an artist, author, feminist, educator, and intellectual whose career now spans five decades. Gloria Steinem stated in Interview magazine (2017), “Chicago is not only a pioneer of feminist art; she is arguably its founder, inventor, and chief figurehead.” She lives and works in Belen, New Mexico. This exhibition, with its dozen-plus needle works and like number of drawings and prints on paper, is unique in that all the work lives in New Mexico, as does the artist herself – in Belen. It is also a coming home of sorts, as part of the Birth Project was implemented here in Taos: Chicago’s graphics team produced exhibition signage and the project book, Birth Project, 1985, Doubleday, in Taos. The Harwood’s exhibition draws from the museum’s own collection as well as from the University of New Mexico Art Museum, Albuquerque Museum, Through the Flower, Judy Chicago’s non-profit feminist art organization, the artist and several private collections. Visit The Harwood Museum of Art for more information on Judy Chicago's work.
