About the work
Guerrilla Girls
Active 1985
Follow

Guerrilla Girls is an anonymous collective of feminist women artists whose incisive social and economic commentary addresses systemic biases against women and people of color in the art world, often from within the institutional contexts their work critiques. Guerrilla Girls formed in New York in 1985 when the group produced a series of protest posters highlighting the stunning paucity of female artists, and near-total absence of black artists, represented in major museums and art galleries. The iconic posters employed polished graphic design and catchy slogans, inverting mainstream marketing tactics to lambast the willingness of artistic institutions to exploit the female body while excluding female narratives. Guerrilla Girls’ brazen approach to protest art proved both effective and influential, and the group continues to successfully spark dialogues about representation and diversity.
