Judy Chicago, Stranded, from The End: A Meditation on Death and Extinction, 2016; Kiln-fired glass paint on black glass, 12 x 18 in.

NMWA presents the newest body of work by feminist and pop-cultural icon Judy Chicago. More than 40 works of painted porcelain and glass, as well as two large bronze sculptures, comprise The End: A Meditation on Death and Extinction. Through this series, the artist reflects on her own mortality and issues an appeal for compassion and justice for all earthly creatures affected by human greed. Chicago’s bold, graphic style viscerally communicates the intense emotion she experienced while contemplating her own individual death as well as the death of entire species. Visually striking as well as emotionally charged, Chicago’s works from this series are a continuation of her commitment to challenge the status quo and advocate for change.
