JUDY CHICAGO ‘REVELATIONS’ WILL BE THE ARTIST’S LARGEST SOLO PRESENTATION IN A LONDON INSTITUTION. 

Published

on

Chicago came to prominence in the late 1960s when she challenged the male-dominated landscape of the art world by making work that was boldly from a woman’s perspective. An artistic polymath, Chicago’s work is defined by a commitment to craft and experimentation, either through her choice of subject matter or the method and materials she employs.

Throughout her six-decade career, Chicago has contested the absence and erasure of women in the Western cultural canon, developing a distinctive visual language that gives visibility to their experiences. To this aim, Chicago has produced both individual and collaborative projects that grappled with themes of birth and creation, the social construct of masculinity, her Jewish identity, notions of power and powerlessness, extinction, and expressed her longstanding concern for climate justice.

Revelations charts the full arc of Chicago’s career with a specific focus on drawing, highlighting rarely-seen works. Several immersive, multi-media elements, including an AR app, a video recording booth, and other audio-visual components, set this show apart from previous surveys of Chicago’s work. With never-before-seen sketchbooks, films and slides, video interviews of participants from The Dinner Party (1974–79), audio recordings, and a guided tour of The Dinner Party by Chicago herself, this novel approach to exhibiting Chicago’s work makes the artist’s presence felt throughout the gallery.

On July 16, Alkadhi took to Instagram, stating, “I cannot accept for my work to be instrumentalized in the service of structural repression, weapons manufacture, apartheid or genocide.” She demanded “disclosure and accountability” from ICA leadership, warning that she would start the process of withdrawing her exhibition if her demands were not met.

From a sculpted athletic torso pierced by metal rods to a skull adorned with glittering decorations, the Royal Academy’s eclectic Summer Exhibition has something for everyone.

The Royal Academy of Arts’ legendary summer exhibition is underway in London.

From big name artists, like Tracey Emin, to new and emerging talent, more than 1,700 works are on display across 13 gallery spaces.

The Royal Academy selects renowned artists like Emin as Royal Academicians, granting them membership in the historic institution. Currently, there are fewer than 100 Academicians, so each year, about two-thirds of the exhibited works are by non-members.
