Judy Chicago is an artist, author, educator and feminist. She’s always encouraged her fellow artists to break artistic boundaries, even if doing so defies social norms.
As a feminist artist, Chicago also studies and writes about the work of other women.
Her most recent book explores Mexico’s most iconic female artist, Frida Kahlo. In Frida Kahlo: Face to Face Chicago breaks through some of the ways Kahlo’s art has been framed and--to her mind--limited, historically.
Judy Chicago talks about the Mexican icon’s art November 4 at 6 p.m.
The event takes place in the Cindy Pritzker Auditorium of the Harold Washington Library on State Street.
