Abstract:

Documents the creation of the "Dinner party", an artistic tribute to women of achievement throughout history. Consisting mainly of painted ceramics and needlework, the exhibit was conceived by feminist artist Judy Chicago and created through the cooperative efforts of numerous women and men during the late 1970s. Those working on the project talk about their feelings and the reactions of viewers are presented.

Documents the creation of "The dinner party," an art installation conceived and coordinated by Judy Chicago. A triangular table with 39 textile and china-painted ceramic place settings, each commemorating a historical or mythical woman, the installation was produced from 1974 to 1979 as a collaboration among hundreds of artists, craftspeople, and researchers. Filmmaker Demetrakas spent four years behind the scenes documenting the research, technical problems, financial pressures, and physical labor involved in creating this monumental, symbolic work of art.
