The anonymous feminist collaborative the Guerrilla Girls (the “conscience of the art world”) has been fighting sexism and racism for more than 25 years. On March 20, they will stage a multimedia performance in full jungle drag. Famous for their willingness to challenge cultural norms with sometimes outrageous humor, the artists will narrate their history of creating posters, books, and actions that expose discrimination in art, film, politics, and more.
The museum presents this event as part of its series What Are Museums For? After the performance, Henry J. Heinz II Director Lynn Zelevansky will engage the Guerrilla Girls in a dynamic exchange of ideas about the evolving role of women in the art world.
**Sponsored by School of Art, Carnegie Mellon University, Larrimor’s, and The Women and Girls Foundation of Southwest Pennsylvania
