Tea & Talk: The Friends Preview "Born Again: Judy Chicago’s Birth Project"

Saturday, February 3, 2018

2:00 PM - 4:00 PM

West Gallery

Before the opening reception of Born Again, please join us for a Tea and Talk, February 3rd, 2 p.m. - 4 p.m.

Born Again features selected artworks from Judy Chicago’s Birth Project, a series of screen prints, needle works and textiles that first toured the United States during the mid-1980s. Chicago collaborated with over 150 experienced needle workers to create this series, which addressed the dearth of birth imagery in western art. Born Again takes a fresh look at the themes investigated in the Birth Project and considers their impact – art historically, societally and intellectually – 30 years after its creation. Join us for a first look at the show and an introduction to the work by gallery director Nicole Watson.

This exhibition has been organized by Through the Flower in conjunction with the Albuquerque Museum of Art and the Florida State University Museum of Fine Arts. Born Again is sponsored by The Friends of the Catherine G. Murphy Gallery.
