“The Guerrilla Girls Talk Back” Exhibit at the National Museum of Women in the Arts

From the gallery:

The Guerrilla Girls, a group of anonymous artist-activists, critique the sexism and racism pervading contemporary culture. Through their populist art production, which includes posters, books, and live performances in which they wear gorilla masks, the group raises awareness about discrimination. This exhibition presents posters and ephemera including works from two portfolios, Guerrilla Girls Talk Back: The First Five Years, 1985-1990 and Guerrilla Girls Talk Back: Portfolio 2. The rousing works on view expose inequity and hypocrisy in the art world and political realm and illustrate the Guerrilla Girls’ call to be proactive — and even “make trouble” — in promoting positive social change.

The exhibit runs through October 2.
