Spotlight Tour: Women of York: “Shared Dining,” 2013  Brief, 15 minute tour. No registration required.

The installation, "Women of York: 'Shared Dining'” was created in 2013 by a group of ten women incarcerated at York Correctional Institution in Connecticut and includes place settings dedicated to the artists' heroines. The work was inspired by Judy Chicago’s iconic feminist masterpiece, "The Dinner Party." Both works we displayed at the Brooklyn Museum in 2015. The installation by the Women of York is included in the Maier's current exhibition, "Carceral States," which focuses on our growing national debate about mass incarceration in American, approaching the theme from a breadth of perspectives by a number of important contemporary artists.
