About the Poster:
This poster references the renowed artwork by Judy Chicago "The Dinner Party", considered one of the cornerstones of feminist art. "The Dinner Party" features 39 plates set around a triangular ceremonial table, each representing the contribution of an important historical female figure. The work was created through years of research and with the help of hundreds of volunteers, at a time when there was little information about many of the women depicted on the plates.
The Dinner Party toured around the world for years and drew millions of visitors. While it was acclaimed by many critics, it also received a significant amount of negative press and struggled to find a buyer. A 1990 purchase by the University of the District of Columbia was blocked by Congress during a televised debate due to its "offensive" nature. It was finally acquired by the Elizabeth A. Sackler Center for Feminist Art at the Brooklyn Museum in 2002, where it has been displayed since 2007.
This fundraising poster was created by Judy Chicago's company, Through the Flower Corporation, and details the conditions under which The Dinner Party should housed in order to honour its message.
In excellent condition and ready to be framed.
