Judy Chicago, Hans Ulrich Obrist, Martha Easton


A new work from Judy Chicago, fifty years in the making: Judy Chicago: Revelations is the piece she thought would never see the light of day. Her captivating narrative combatting the erasure of women from history unites seamlessly with illustrations first made in the 1970s and new work in a striking, contemporary design

See Inside


Revelations is the work that Judy Chicago believed would never be published: a radical retelling of human history in the form of an illuminated manuscript, recovering stories of women that society sought to erase. Begun alongside her iconic installation The Dinner Party in the mid-1970s, and drawing on her intensive research into goddess worship and women’s history, Revelations is foundational to Chicago’s decades-long practice. It is at once a vibrant narrative and a work of art, fifty years in the making.


'Judy Chicago is now regarded as a trailblazing figure in the art world'
John Wilson, This Cultural Life, BBC Radio 4

'A sprawling, five-chapter narrative in vivid vignettes telling of the ageless fight for power between men and women ... The stories of fortitude in the face of rejection, violence and humiliation form a litany that is enraging and astonishing, though not unfamiliar'
New York Times
