Guerrilla Girls

You may have seen the Guerrilla Girls exhibit at the Fingesten Gallery in NYC. On September 24, hear about art, activism, and feminism reinvented at a panel with the Guerrilla Girls.

Organized by Dyson Art Professor Robin Tewes, Guerrilla Girls 1985-2000, the group show and retrospective of poster work produced by the Guerrilla Girls, opened at the Peter Fingesten Gallery on Pace’s NYC Campus on September 17.

And on Tuesday, September 24, the Guerrilla Girls will not be monkeying around as they host a panel on art, activism, and feminism reinvented from 3:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. in the Student Union’s Meeting Room A.

Guerrilla Girls, an anonymous female art collective who take the names of dead women artists as pseudonyms and appear in public wearing gorilla masks, have produced posters, stickers, books, printed projects, and actions that expose sexism and racism in politics, the art world, film, and the culture at large.

The show runs through October 12.
