Guerrilla Girls, a group of anonymous anti-establishment artists who “use facts, humor and outrageous visuals to expose discrimination and corruption in politics, art, film, and pop culture” are on their way to Wellesley College this month.
They’ll be a the Davis Museum for a lecture at Jewett Auditorium on Thursday, Nov. 14 at 5:30pm; and a gallery talk at the museum on Friday, Nov. 15 at 1:30pm. The lecture will feature a performance by the Guerrilla Girls and will be followed by a talkback session led by the artist and activist, Lorraine O’Grady (Wellesley Class of ’55). During the gallery talk, the Guerrilla Girls will discuss the conception and creation of some of their most famous posters and projects that are part of the Davis Museum Collection. Both events are free and open to the public.
The Guerrilla GIrls were formed in 1985 in response to an exhibition at The Museum of Modern Art that almost exclusively highlighted male artists.
