The Dinner Party by Judy Chicago

Written by Leisure / General, Tania

Had to visit the Brooklyn Museum concerning a paper for women and gender studies. Went up to the fourth floor to have a look at the dinner party by Judy Chicago. Shaped in a triangle it featured plates from influential women of history. Each edge was lined with 13 plates. The floor of the exhibit also had the names of many more historically significant women throughout history. After snapping some images and taking some notes Tania and I walked through the rest of the museum.

We both agreed that many of the other exhibits were not very captivating. Maybe it was due to a lack of historical knowledge on our part. Nonetheless, we still had fun touring the place. And now it’s time to write the paper.
