Historic conversation between Judy Chicago and Anais Nin
Stage and Studio is off this week. Instead we'll hear a program from the Pacifica Archives. The series is From the Vault which highlights an historic conversation between two radical and influential women from the feminist era of the 1970's , Artist Judy Chicago and writer Anais Nin.
In 1972, Pacifica station KPFK dedicated the month to a number of special programs by, for and about women.
Anais Nin (pictured above) is the celebrated author who was is probably best know for her published diary, The Diary of Anais Nin, which is the subject of Feminist debate in this discussion.
Judy Chicago (pictured below) had relocated to Los Angeles to teach at the California Institute for the Arts, and later co-founded the historic Women's building in Los Angeles the following year in 1973.
