Judy Chicago featuring: Marcia Hafif, John McCracken, Robert Morris, Bruce Nauman, Pat O’Neill and DeWain Valentine
Solo and group exhibition curated by Géraldine Gourbe
01.07 – 04.11.2018
Ahead of Judy Chicago’s first retrospective in December 2018 at the Miami MOCA, the Villa Arson is bringing together for the first time a large part of her works from the 60s and 70s: paintings, sculptures and installations including Feather Room, which had never been re-created since 1967 and which will be presented in the prestigious Galerie Carrée of the art center.
The curator of the exhibition, Geraldine Gourbe, a philosopher specialized in Californian art from the 60s on, also wished to present the works of some other West Coast artists. They all shared in Judy Chicago’s experimenting during these cool years: Marcia Hafif, John McCracken, Robert Morris, Bruce Nauman, Pat O’Neill and DeWain Valentine.
The selection sheds light on how Chicago’s work came to be, as well as on an exceptional art scene; it makes the exhibition both a one-woman show and a group show.
