New York, NY, U.S.A.: Viking Penguin, 1993. The Holocaust Project is an art exhibit which casts the Holocaust as a reference point for an exploration of profound issues that relate to the human condition - past, present and future. The Holocaust Project is the vision of the world-renowned artist Judy Chicago, who with Donald Woodman, distinguished photographer, created a collection of art which engages viewers to think about their relationships with other people and to our planet as a whole. The Holocaust is approached as an event that happened at the core of our civilization, the heart of our culture, and in the midst of societies resembling our own. It is a pivotal event for contemporary society. The exhibit takes visitors on a journey into one of the darkest periods of modern history through a series of works which includes a tapestry, two stained glass pieces, and, in the main part of the exhibit, 13 large- scale tableaus combining painting and photography in an unprecedented manner. The art transforms the experience of the Holocaust into images that will become part of people's visual and mental record and thus irreversibly touch their lives.. Signed by Illustrator.
