West Gallery: The Catherine G. Murphy Gallery presents Born Again, a traveling exhibition featuring 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.
All events are free and open to the public. 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. For more information, please visit gallery.stkate.edu
