Men creating their own retrospectives is common in art history, most explicitly Marcel Duchamp’s de ou par Marcel Duchamp ou Rrose Sélavy (La Boîte-en-valise) (1936)—a box containing reproductions of his most famous works. Chicago has always been committed to empowering the self-archiving of women, so her Retrospective in a Box—a suite of ten prints surveying her career that contains, among other central series, the only limited edition print related to The Dinner Party—is, as always, a political gesture aimed at elevating women’s art and its preservation.
