Judy Chicago is an American painter, sculptor and installation artist. Her career has always joint the artistic practice with her activities as educator, and has always embraced feminist thematics. During the 70s already, the artist pioneered Feminist art and art education through a programme for women at California State University, Fresno, a pedagogical approach that she has continued to develop over the years. Chicago’s works have been included in several museum exhibitions across the United States, Canada, Europe, Asia and Australia as well. Her artistic practice has always been sided by the publishing one: besides being included with her pieces in several publications, Chicago has authored books, published in different languages and countries.
