DESCRIPTION

Not Ready to Make Nice, a major presentation of the Guerrilla Girls, illuminates and contextualizes the important historical and ongoing work of these highly original, provocative and influential artists who champion feminism and social change. Focusing primarily on recent work from the past decade, the exhibition features rarely shown international projects that trace the collective’s artistic and activist influence around the globe. This multimedia, expansive exhibition illustrates that the work of the anonymous, feminist-activist Guerrilla Girls is as vital and revolutionary as ever.

Spanning two galleries, artwork is organized by theme: Glass Curtain Gallery features work related to the visual art world of museums and galleries, and A+D Gallery focuses on work “beyond” this spectrum including film, politics and feminism.

Not Ready to Make Nice is curated by Neysa Page-Lieberman
