Art events to leave the house for this month

November 30th, 2018


Five decades ago, Judy Chicago began what we now know as Atmospheres, a series of landscape installations and performances staged between 1968–1974. In a year which saw female rage spill over, with movements such as Me Too, Chicago’s work feels as important as ever. Nina Johnson gallery is currently celebrating the feminist luminary by sharing unseen imagery from these happenings. Speaking with Dazed earlier this month in regards to a recent resurgence of her work amongst galleries and museums, Chicago noted, “It is not unusual for it to take decades for people to understand my work.”

Atmospheres runs at Nina Johnson until 2 March 2019. A major retrospective of Chicago’s work is also taking place at Miami’s ICA
