The Guerrilla Girls are an anonymous group of artist activists who expose sexism and racism in art, film, politics, and pop culture. They grew out of a protest of the Museum of Modern Art’s 1985 An International Survey of Painting and Sculpture, an exhibition that featured 148 men, 13 women, and almost no artists of color. When traditional means of protesting failed to draw attention to this inequality, some of the protesters decided to form a group focused on guerrilla-style protest techniques. They wear gorilla masks in public and created versions of their messages that usually paired shocking statistics with eye-catching graphics to attract attention to their cause. The group has done hundreds of projects, including posters, billboards, books, exhibitions, and videos, all around the world. They continue to create work that addresses bias against women and BIPOC artists, as well as other discriminatory practices.
The group’s large-scale interactive installation, titled The Art of Behaving Badly, will be on view at the Momentary grounds during the FORMAT Festival.
FORMAT is a three-day festival featuring an eclectic music lineup, artist-built venues and interactive art experiences taking place on the grounds of the Momentary and surrounding area on September 22–24, 2023.
