First exhibited in 1979, Judy Chicago's The Dinner Party consists of a large triangular table on which rest 39 place settings representing celebrated women from the past, ranging from “Primordial Goddess” to Virginia Woolf. Part of the Brooklyn Museum’s permanent collection, The Dinner Party is now installed in a dramatic space that has a reverential aura, a kind of expectant hush, as if women were about to take their rightful place at the great table of human history.
