Woman’s House


Taking place during the women’s liberation movement, Idemitsu filmed the Womanhouse which became her first 16mm film work. Judy Chicago and Miriam Schapiro jointly organized the Feminist Art Program at the California Institute of the Arts (Cal Arts) in 1971. The Cal Arts Feminist Art Program group performed for the audience at Womanhouse in 1972. They transformed an old run-down mansion in Los Angeles into Womanhouse. In the kitchen a progression of sculptured breasts gradually turned into fried eggs; one bathroom contained a mass of Tampax, and if you opened the linen closet you found a trapped mannequin.
