This volume uses works on paper to explore the career of feminist artist Judy Chicago. In 1970 Chicago launched the first feminist art program in the country, at Fresno State College in Fresno, California. She developed and championed an art that functions socially, that encourages an evocative relationship with a large public audience. Meaning and relationship were cultivated through the same methods that give Chicago an historical place as a pioneer and developer of feminist and Post-Modern art: documented collaborative process; the invention of symbols/forms to match social messages; the redefinition of female-associated forms; the crossing of interdisciplinary boundaries; the use of media and technique to match the message so that "neo and "old" as well as "high" and "low" are mixed into a non-hierarchical treatment.

A "public historian" and primary patron of Judy Chicago (b. 1939), Sackler edits her first book for the National Museum of Women of the Arts in Washington, DC, to coincide with an exhibit there this fall. Sackler, who contributes a foreword, deems Chicago a genius, virtually a living icon of feminist art. Chicago's dedication to consciousness raising and butterfly/vagina or "cunt imagery" appears in her many paintings, performances, installations, crafts, and multimedia projects. Many works are documented here in 100 color plates; 20 detail her well-known "The Dinner Party" (1979), a collaboration featuring table settings that honor 39 women. This book contains contributions by Edward Lucie-Smith, who defines Chicago's moral vision; Lucy Lippard, who interviews her; and curator Viki D. Thompson Wylder, who offers a fine essay on Chicago's oeuvre. Sackler's book covers Chicago's most important works and presents the new and potentially very influential interview with Lippard; it is recommended along with Lucie-Smith's Judy Chicago: An American Vision (2000), which contains plates of larger scale and is written by a well-known critic with access to the artist and her studio. Recommended for large and university collections. Mary H. Bruce, Cutler Memorial P.L., Plainfield, VT
