Berlind Symposium, Lecture: "Judy Chicago’s epic feminist installation, 'The Dinner Party'"

An important icon of 1970’s feminist art and a milestone in 20th-century art, "The Dinner Party" installation at the Brooklyn Museum’s Elizabeth A. Sackler Center for Feminist Art is comprised of thirty-nine place settings on a triangular banquet table, each honoring an important woman from history. This work was the inspiration for the "Women of York: 'Shared Dining,'" included in the Maier's 106th Annual Exhibition of Contemporary Art: "Carceral States" (on view through Dec. 15, 2017).

At Randolph, Shipley’s research and teaching interest are in modern and contemporary art with an emphasis on identity, feminism and activism since 1969. She has an M.F.A. from American University and a Ph.D. from Bryn Mawr College.

Coffee break to follow.
