Visually striking and emotionally charged, the newest body of work by feminist icon Judy Chicago continues her commitment to challenge the status quo and advocate for change. Nearly 40 works of painted porcelain and glass, as well as two large bronze sculptures, comprise The End: A Meditation on Death and Extinction. Through this series, the artist reflects on her own mortality and appeals for compassion and justice for all earthly creatures affected by human greed. Chicago’s bold, graphic style viscerally communicates the intense emotion she experienced while contemplating her own death, as well as the death of entire species.
