Chicago in L.A. (in Brooklyn)

Add Judy Chicago to the list of Los Angeles artists getting major New York museum shows. “Chicago in L.A.: Judy Chicago’s Early Work 1963-74″ opens at the Brooklyn Museum April 4, 2014, and runs through Sept. 28.

“I won’t show in any group defined as Woman, Jewish, or California,” Chicago declared in 1968. “Someday when we all grow up there will be no labels.” In group exhibitions of 60s/70s West Coast art, Chicago’s work always stands out. Can’t somebody bring this show to L.A.? (Pictured, Heaven Is for White Men Only, c. 1972)
