– Chicago in L.A.: Judy Chicago’s Early Work, 1963-74 presents sixty drawings, paintings, photographs, prints, sculptures and videos surveying the significant early work produced by feminist artist Judy Chicago when she lived in Los Angeles during the late sixties and early seventies. Not only do the selections showcase Chicago’s importance as a pioneer of the California art scene but the installation as a whole places these experimental yet seminal pieces within the arc of the artist’s broader production, particularly their influence on her masterpiece, “The Dinner Party,” (1979), the centerpiece of the Brooklyn Museum’s Elizabeth A. Sackler Center for Feminist Art.

On view are important early sculptures created when Chicago was a participant in the Finish Fetish School, including, “Rainbow Picket,” (1964) and, “3.5.5 Acrylic Shapes,” (1967), which blend minimalist forms and bold color choices inspired by the rapid industrialization and suburbification of Southern California. Also on display are a range of vibrant paintings and sculptures made with sprayed acrylic lacquer, a material typically used for decorating cars which the artist mastered as the only woman in an auto shop class during the early sixties including, “Birth Hood,” (1965), “Fresno Fans Series,” (1971), “Heaven is for White Men Only,” (1973), “Through the Flower,” (1973) and “Rejection Quintet,” (1974).
