Guerrillas in the Midst

To paraphrase a dead white guy completely out of context, it’s the best of times and worst of times for American women today. Taking inspiration from the Occupy Movement, the Guerrilla Girls are Not Ready to Make Nice, and remind us that although the Mad Men era of discrimination might be gone, men still primarily hold the bulk of the world’s privilege, power and money.  Riding on the social and institutional critique they started in the 1980s, the group of masked art world players aren’t changing their formula much, but have found a current relevancy with recent media noise about the battle for...

by Dan Gunn
        “Let There Be Geo” at Columbia College’s A+D Gallery is large group show devoted to the current use of geometric abstraction in art.
