A personal anecdote from Troy Seidman:

In my childhood home, in the laundry room, were two exhibition posters from the AGO.

One was for Van Gogh's "Irises" and the other was Judy Chicago's "The Dinner Party" - both were successful exhibits in Toronto in the early 1980's.

I was always intrigued by "The Dinner Party" and this was years before I had learned the word "installation".

While no one at home at ever explained the works to me or discussed seeing these exhibitions, I absorbed an important lesson about the capacity of art; specifically that it existed and evolved without definitions or boundaries. 

As a child I had understood "The Dinner Party" as a sort of sci-fi banquet...with an elaborate lobster meal being offered to the guest who sat at the triangle table's apex.

"The Dinner Party" came up for discussion while I was studying Art History at McGill. 

I nearly fell out of my seat when it was explained that this was one of the most radical, successful and reviled works of art of the 20th century...and that vaginal imagery was an essential part of the work's aesthetic. 

Chicago began work on "The Dinner Party" in 1973 - the same year this amazing screenprint was created.

Its abstract composition both alludes to some of the Op Art of the era. It also foreshadows some of the motifs Chicago used in "The Dinner Party"

Caviar20 is excited to be offering this fantastic example from Judy Chicago from the most important era of her career.

(And if you've never seen "The Dinner Party" it is on permanent display at the Brooklyn Museum)
