Measuring equality in the art world.

Guerrilla Girls

with one comment

Guerrilla Girls is a group of anonymous women who use dead female artist names as pseudonyms and wear gorilla masks in public. But that is not all they do. They are feminists who are trying to make the world aware of the sexism and racism in the art world through posters, stickers and different actions. This year the Guerrilla Girls are focusing, among other things, on the sexism in the Irish art world. To read more about this project and see their funny and thought provoking posters click here.
