Judy Chicago at NMWA

On Sunday, Judy Chicago came to NMWA to discuss her new book, Frida Kahlo: Face to Face. She explained that her book was an attempt to “challenge the dominance of the male narrative” and celebrate “women’s artistic agency.” Chicago discussed Kahlo’s work in relation to other works showing similar subjects and themes, explaining that Kahlo is an important figure because she broke the silence of women’s experience. Thank you to Judy Chicago and everyone who came–we had a full house!
