For many art historians, Judy Chicago’s The Dinner Party, 1974-79, is the defining work of feminist art. The triangular table set for 39 of history’s most illustrious women with porcelain plates in vulva-like forms was given a room of its own at the Brooklyn Museum in 2007. Over the next year, that reputation will be compounded as exhibitions at both the National Museum of Women in the Arts and the Brooklyn Museum—its permanent home—open to look at how The Dinner Party was made, while numerous other venues are looking back on Chicago’s lesser-known works.
