In the early 1970s, Dr. Harper provided the creative spark for a project that became a milestone in women’s art. As a lecturer at the California Institute of the Arts, outside Los Angeles, where the first feminist art program at a major art school had just begun, Dr. Harper suggested that the 21 students in the original class collaborate on a project about what house, home and domesticity meant to women.
The idea clicked, and working with the two artists who had founded the program, Judy Chicago and Miriam Schapiro, the students transformed a rundown mansion in Hollywood into “Womanhouse,” one of the biggest and most celebrated exhibitions of art by and about women ever assembled.
I’m shattered. This is the work. It’s the work. Oh my god.
