"If men had babies, there would be thousands of images of the crowning."
Judy Chicago, 1982
The Birth Project - created by Judy Chicago between 1980 and 1985 in collaboration with 150 needleworkers - was the first body of contemporary art to comprehensively address the range of experiences associated with childbirth. Born Again, an exhibition curated by Dr. Viki Thompson Wylder, (a scholar on Chicago's work) will open on September 23rd, 2016 at Florida State University Museum of Fine Arts. Comprised of Birth Project work from their collection and showcasing a major piece from the Albuquerque Museum, the exhibit will be amplified by extensive educational programming including a semester long class led by Wylder that will explore Chicago's role as a founder of the Feminist Art Movement as well as an artist of culturally and aesthetically transformative feminist art.
