Judy Chicago is an American artist and major figure within the early Feminist Art movement of the 1970s, and is considered one of the most prominent voices in ongoing dialogue about women and art. Chicago consistently challenges the male-dominated art world and sought to draw attention to traditionally dismissed craft, such as needlework and ceramics. Her iconic The Dinner Party (1974–1979) consisting of a large-scale triangular table complete with intricate table settings each laid for a different woman in history—remains her best-known work and an indelible moment in 20th-century cultural criticism.
Dublin born artist Ciarna Pham, who works under the name Kiki Na Art, is the creator of these unique pieces of handcrafted jewellery. The stunning one of a kind pieces are made for the individual and no two pieces are ever the same. To compliment the Desire exhibition at IMMA, Kiki Na Art has produced a collection of unique jewellery and wall pieces based on women artists in the museum collection.
