Guerrilla Girls: Reinventing the ‘F’ word – Feminism!
Punchy, satirical and incisive, the Guerrilla Girls’ gorilla-masked personas, bold visual language and frank, humorous messages have rendered them iconic in the history of art and as part of wider social movements.
Guerrilla Girls: Reinventing the ‘F’ Word – Feminism! follows the collective’s artistic practice from 1985 until 2016, and explores how their striking, fun and provocative work criticises ongoing biases in art and society.
