Description:

The paper looks at which theoretical framework best permits the viewer to grasp Chicago's intent and submits that feminist theory is the best conceptual tool available for understanding one of the most controversial pieces of art produced in the 1970s. In addition, the paper discusses the formal elements of the piece and locates it within its cultural and historical context. The paper explains why it was selected for an essay of this sort, how it functioned within the society in which it was created, and how successful the artist was in conveying her ideas - and how well-received (or not) the work was by the general public. The paper concludes that the "The Dinner Party" is unapologetically feminist - and yet it has thrived despite taking an openly tough-minded and irreverent stance towards traditional conceptions of femininity.
