Join us for an action packed evening as we celebrate “Not Ready To Make Nice: Guerrilla Girls In The Artworld And Beyond” This event will feature a live performance by an original member of the Guerrilla Girl artist collective followed by a discussion with exhibition curator Neysa Page-Lieberman.
This event is in conjunction with the exhibition “Not Ready To Make Nice: Guerrilla Girls In The Artworld And Beyond” on view until March 17. A major presentation of the Guerrilla Girls collective, this exhibition illuminates and contextualizes the important past and ongoing work of these highly original, provocative and influential artists who champion feminism and social change. A selection of the group’s most iconic campaigns and actions from the 80’s and 90’s foregrounds their most daring and rarely seen international projects, which trace the Guerrilla Girls’ artistic and activist influence around the globe. Installations are punctuated by documentary material including ephemera from famous actions, behind-the-scenes photos and secret anecdotes that reveal the Guerrilla Girls’ process and the events that drive their incisive institutional interventions. Visitors can peruse the artists’ favorite “love letters and hate mail,” drawn from almost three decades of humorous, heart-warming and shocking communications, and are invited to contribute their own views to an interactive wall installation. This multimedia, expansive exhibition illustrates that the work of the anonymous, feminist-activist Guerrilla Girls is as vital and revolutionary as ever.
