Institutional Time: A Critique of Studio Art Education
- $36.00 for Members
Creator of the celebrated The Dinner Party, a monumental art installation now on permanent display at the Brooklyn Museum, Judy Chicago reviews her own art education in the 1960s, when she overcame sexist obstacles to beginning a career as an artist and became recognized as one of the key figures in the dynamic California art scene of that decade. She reviews the present-day situation of young people aspiring to become artists and uncovers the persistence of a bias against women and other minorities in studio art education. Far from a dry educational treatise, Institutional Time is heartfelt and highly personal—a book that has the earmarks of a classic in arts education.
