This new limited edition print of Wrestling with the Shadow for Her Life (1982) is released on the occasion of the exhibition Judy Chicago: Revelations (23 May – 1 September 2024) at Serpentine.


Wrestling with the Shadow for Her Life is part of Chicago’s series Shadow Drawings (1980s), which emerged from Chicago’s collaboration with needleworkers on the Birth Project (1980–85). Rendered in vibrant spectral colour and Chicago’s signature use of Prismacolor pencils, these works addresses the complexity of love, gender dynamics, familial structures, power, and sexuality. Highlighting the shadows cast on women’s lives by patriarchal value systems, the drawing vividly foregrounds the struggles of women in their expected roles as homemakers and caregivers, which impacts them socially, personally and economically.
