GUERRILLA GIRLS. DO WOMEN HAVE TO BE NAKED TO GET INTO
Item Details
Description
GUERRILLA GIRLS DO WOMEN HAVE TO BE NAKED TO GET INTO THE MET. MUSEUM? 1989.
11x28 inches, 28x71 cm.
Condition A: minor creases and abrasions at edges. Paper.
Feminist, activist artists, famous for their anonymity, the Guerrilla Girls have boasted over 55 members over their 35-year history. Their own words give the best insight into their mission: “Our anonymity keeps the focus on the issues, and away from who we might be. 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. We undermine the idea of a mainstream narrative by revealing the understory, the subtext, the overlooked, and the downright unfair. We believe in an intersectional feminism that fights discrimination and supports human rights for all people and all genders” (guerrillagirls.com). Their unapologetic and very public criticism of the art world – museums, galleries, dealers and auctions – offered in the next several lots, is one of the most persistent themes. American Style 86, Whitney 2015.8.87.
