This historic documentary centers on one of the most important feminist cultural events of the 1970s: Womanhouse, the art installation and performance space organized by Judy Chicago (best known as the creator of The Dinner Party) and Miriam Schapiro, co-founders of the California Institute of the Arts (CalArts) Feminist Art Program. Staged in an old Hollywood mansion, the collaborative feminist art exhibition featured 25 women artists, who altered the home’s interior through decor and set pieces to "search out and reveal the female experience...the dreams and fantasies of women as they sewed, cooked, washed and ironed away their lives." The post-film Q&A will focus on the ever-important relationship between art and social change, and feature the curator and artists behind Call and Response: Creative Interpretations of the Wylie House. Contains explicit content, including a description of rape.
