Judy Chicago | THE FLOWERING in Conversation with Kevin Kwan

Upcoming Event
Sunday, July 18, 2021 - 2:00pm

With a foreword by Gloria Steinem, The Flowering: The Autobiography of Judy Chicago. shares Judy Chicago’s vision for making art that matters—from the monumental, multi-media table laid for thirty-nine iconic women in The Dinner Party to the groundbreaking Birth Project, the meticulously researched Holocaust Project, genre-defying pyrotechnic Smoke SculpturesTM.

“The Flowering,” Chicago writes, “chronicles my journey as a white, cis, middle-class Jewish woman who learned about the potential power of art through the widespread positive response to her work despite art critical scorn; who had to build a community of support when there was none; who never swerved from her vision, no matter how difficult her life became; and who ultimately triumphed by not giving up... I hope my readers will find my tale as inspiring as I did when I first discovered the long struggle of my foremothers, who paved the way for so many of the freedoms we enjoy today.”

Kevin Kwan is the author of the international bestsellers Crazy Rich AsiansChina Rich Girlfriend, and Rich People ProblemsCrazy Rich Asians was a #1 New York Times bestseller, a major motion picture, and has been translated into more than thirty languages.
