Thursday, August 5, 2021
Join us for a virtual evening with the Guerrilla Girls as they discuss their art, actions, and book Guerrilla Girls: The Art of Behaving Badly. A Q&A session will follow the discussion. The Guerrilla Girls are a group of political artists who have been exposing gender biases and discrimination in art and culture for over 30 years. Guerrilla Girls: The Art of Behaving Badly is the first book to catalog the entire career of the Guerrilla Girls from 1985 to present.
More about The Guerrilla Girls
In 1985, a bunch of feminist masked avengers began plastering posters all over downtown New York. They named galleries, museums, critics, collectors, and white male artists who contributed to an art system that was prejudiced against women and artists of color. Since then, the collective has produced hundreds of projects exposing bias and corruption in art, film, pop culture, and politics. Their unforgettable graphics have become a global phenomenon. The Guerrilla Girls believe in an intersectional feminism that fights discrimination and supports human rights for all people and all genders. They undermine the idea of a mainstream narrative by revealing the understory, the subtext, the overlooked, and the downright unfair.
