|Judy Chicago’s Birth Project: Born Again
The Birth Project, executed between 1980 and 1985, was stitched by 150 women needleworkers who joined artist Judy Chicago over a five year period to complete approximately 100 textiles for a series of “exhibition units.” Chicago worked with needleworkers, providing underpaintings or drawings and written directions for the transformation of her images.
