The Birth Project by Judy Chicago

The Birth Project is one of the best-known works by Judy Chicago. It consists of more than 80 exhibitions units designed by Chicago and executed under her supervision by several skilled needleworkers from all around the world. The pieces range in size from very small petit point works to a twenty-foot-long crochet work and are presented with the documentation that contextualises the art and that educate the audience, not only about birth, but also about needlework, and the reality of women’s lives.
