Guerrilla Girls

Guerrilla Girls is a group of feminist activist artists founded in New York in 1985. Since then, the group has had over 55 members. Remaining anonymous, the members wear gorilla masks and use pseudonyms referring to deceased female artists. Their anonymity “keeps the focus on the issues and away from who we might be”. The Guerrilla Girls expose gender and racial inequality in the art community and fight all forms of discrimination. They have organized dozens of street interventions around the world, organized public discussions, and spread posters and stickers highlighting statistical inequalities between male and female artists. The group dub themselves as “the conscience of the art world’”.
