Artlyst – Judy Chicago Unleashes Her New Autobiography – Edward Lucie-SmithThe dust-jacket of this handsome new book proclaims that ‘Judy Chicago is America’s most dynamic living artist’.

Obviously, there is a great deal of art that doesn’t matter. This includes the work issuing from those university art programs that every year pump out thousands of graduates, taught only to speak in tongues about formal, conceptual and theoretical issues few people care about or can comprehend. Then there is the art created for a global market that has convinced too many people that a piece’s selling price is more important than the content it conveys.
