Judy Chicago: Fire Works

“Fire Works” explores Judy Chicago’s work in glass, pyrotechnics, and smoke. Since the 1970s, Judy Chicago has been a central figure in feminist art practice, and is well known for her incendiary interventions. This exhibition looks closely at projects that take up incendiary material in the service of social, political, and aesthetic intervention. Although much of this work was forged in fire, the resulting objects and documentation are as explosive as they are subtle, and as dangerous as they are fragile.
