The Female Devine: Judy Chicago Collaborates with Dior for their 2020 Spring/Summer Haute Couture Show
January 20 @ 12:00 am - January 31 @ 11:59 pm
At the invitation of Maria Grazia Chiuri, Creative Director for the fashion house, Christian Dior, Judy Chicago designed a monumental set based on her concept of “The Female Divine” for Dior’s spring-summer 2020 haute couture show in Paris. Situated in the gardens of the Musée Rodin, the set consists of an enormous structure in the form of a goddess figure with the interior elements designed to imagine and honor an alternative matriarchal history.
Similar to Chicago’s commitment to creating art that can stimulate positive social change, Chiuri has striven to steer fashion away from its history of oppression towards empowerment. Their collaboration is a continuation of the goal that Chicago set out to achieve through her most famous monumental installation, The Dinner Party, 1979: to restore divinity to women.
