In honor of Holocaust Remembrance Day we are announcing Through the Flower Art Space's next exhibition "The Holocaust Project and the Legacy of Genocide" on view May 4, 2023 - December 2023.
The exhibition will consist of illustrated panels that document Judy Chicago and Donald Woodman’s harrowing journey into the darkness of the Holocaust and out into the light of hope along with selected works from the "Holocaust Project". This show is intended to raise important questions about the human capacity for evil and how to work for change in a world that seems increasingly dark.
On November 5th, 2022, Judy Chicago and Diane Gelon, who worked for years as The Dinner Party coordinator and is now the President of the Board of Through the Flower, were in conversation together at Through the Flower Art Space. Their presentation, Revisiting The Dinner Party: Why It's Important Now, highlighted The Dinner Party studio and discuss how many of the 400 women and men who worked on the project were empowered by learning the stories of the women seated at The Dinner Party. You can watch the video below.
Congratulations to this year’s winning proposal by Tressa Berman Ph.D., titled “Wo/Manhouse 2022 and Beyond: The Living Transmission of Feminist Place-making Through Art,” centered on the practice of “feminist place-making” using Womanhouse and Wo/Manhouse 2022 as models for this form of collaborative art. She will work on her project throughout the coming year conducting research and recording interviews with participating artists and will present her findings at the Through the Flower Art Space.
Through the Flower was founded by Judy Chicago in 1977 as a 501(c)3 non- profit organization to manage the overwhelming public support of The Dinner Party (1974-1979). Since its inception, Through the Flower’s activities have focused on education and continues to engage in numerous initiatives aimed at providing opportunities for learning about women’s history through art.
Thank you to our many supporters who, through giving their time, expertise, and donations, helped us to open the Through the Flower Art Space.
Through the Flower is supported in part by the National Endowment for the Humanities and the New Mexico Humanities Council.
We welcome donations of any size, even if it’s your valuable time!
