Judy Chicago is an artist who has set the agenda for feminist art in the United States since the late sixties. In conjunction with Miriam Schapiro, Chicago pioneered an art education unique program at calarts (UCLA), which has influenced the Mexican artist Mónica Mayer, who attended the program. Monica joins the Biennial with El Tendedero (The Clotheslinne). Atmospheres is a work made between 1968 and 1974, using fireworks of different colors (colored smoke) in natural spaces of California. The goal was to transform and soften the landscape through the introduction of a feminine impulse to the environment, and recreate pre-historical activities focused on women - such as lighting fires or worshiping gods.
