Presented in conversation with SNMA Executive Director Robert Kesten, The Guerrilla Girls will discuss their book, Guerrilla Girls: The Art of Behaving Badly.
About The Guerrilla Girls
The Guerrilla Girls are feminist activist artists. We wear gorilla masks in public and use facts, humor and outrageous visuals to expose gender and ethnic bias as well as corruption in politics, art, film, and pop culture. Our anonymity keeps the focus on the issues, and away from who we might be: we could be anyone and we are everywhere. We believe in an intersectional feminism that fights discrimination and supports human rights for all people and all genders. We undermine the idea of a mainstream narrative by revealing the understory, the subtext, the overlooked, and the downright unfair.
About Guerrilla Girls: The Art of Behaving Badly
Courageous practitioners of the arts of inspiration and instigation, the Guerrilla Girls have mounted 35 years’ worth of cunning attacks, by holding those entrenched in privilege accountable: in galleries, museums, and the societies these cultural institutions reflect. This brilliant collective is unparalleled, empowering communities by exposing gender and racial inequalities in the art world and beyond—and it’s all here, in dozens of indelible works that are some of the most impactful of all time.
