Judy Chicago produced Mary, Queen of Scots with Cirrus in 1973, and last year returned to produce On Fire at Eighty. Long recognized for her pioneering investigations and celebrations of the feminine, Chicago worked with environments from at least 1967, when she, Eric Orr, and Lloyd Hamrol created atmospheric conditions using dry ice at Century City in Los Angeles. Her colored smoke works, which she describes as “feminized atmospheres” have a long history in her practice, from works such as Smoke Bodies and Immolation IV (1972) to A Purple Poem for Miami (2019). On Fire at Eighty features Chicago in a celebratory performance for her eightieth birthday.
