Guerrilla Girls

2009 March 4

At today’s panel I will be analyzing the Guerrilla Girls, a group of female radical feminist artists who have taken it upon themselves to call attention to the obvious sexism and racism that has plagued the art community for centuries. Here are some tidbits of information:

  • started in 1985 and is still active today
  • members wear gorilla masks (a play on the word “guerrilla”) to public performances/ speaking engagements and adopt the names of deceased female artists in order to maintain anonymity
  • use statistical analysis to prove the biases of the art community
  • have a tongue-in-cheek approach in their protests
