Judy Chicago: Powerplay: A Prediction
to Sat 3 Mar 2018

From 1982 through 1987 Judy Chicago created a body of work examining the gender construct of masculinity. In both modest and monumental drawings, paintings, cast paper and bronze pieces, she cast a critical eye on the ways in which men have exercised power and some of the consequences for both them and the world we all inhabit.

Judy Chicago

“I knew that I didn’t want to keep perpetuating the use of the female body as the repository of so many emotions; it seemed as if everything – love, dread, longing, loathing, desire, and terror – was projected onto the female by both male and female artists, albeit with often differing perspectives. I wondered what feelings the male body might be made to express. Also, I wanted to understand why men acted so violently.” – Judy Chicago, 1982

More than thirty years after Chicago completed PowerPlay, Salon 94 is honored to present a select group of works from this remarkably prescient series in our first exhibition by the artist.
