Creating The Supper Club
Interpreting Judy Chicago’s The Dinner Party
Enjoy this video that traces the production, presentation, and reflection on the final project assigned for History of Women in American Society, a UWM course taught in the Fall of 2016 by PhD student Krista Grensavitch. Students collaborated to create The Supper Club, a local reinterpretation of Judy Chicago’s The Dinner Party. First exhibited in 1979, The Dinner Party seeks to address the repeated erasure of women’s achievements from the historical and cultural record.
