0003) GUERRILLA GIRLS: THE ART OF BEHAVING BADLY
 

An anonymous group of activist women artists, The Guerrilla Girls, have been fighting since 1984 to expose biases in the art world. They doggedly advocate for equal representation in museums, galleries and other arts organizations around the world. In order to maintain anonymity, they wear gorilla masks in public and take the names of dead women artists as pseudonyms. Their crusade began with a poster campaign that targeted museums, dealers, curators, critics and artists who they felt were actively responsible for, or complicit in, the exclusion of women and non-white artists from mainstream exhibitions and publications. Come and hear how these women, the “conscience of the art world,” have used wit and irony to tackle issues of gender and racial discrimination in the art world and beyond.
