Feminist Masked Avengers: 30 Early Guerrilla Girls’ Posters

June 1 – July 18, 2011
Mason Gross School of the Arts Galleries hours: Tues. – Fri., 10am – 3pm, weekends by appointment.
In 1985, a bunch of in-your-face posters went up o the streets of New York and all hell broke loose. The Guerrilla Girls were born. Over a hundred posters, actions, books and billboards followed about art, art history, politics, film, theatre, social issues, popular culture and corruption in the art world. Now 26 years later, this exhibition will feature early Guerrilla Girls posters, including a set donated by founding member, Liubov Popova, to the Miriam Schapiro Archives on Women Artists at Rutgers University Libraries, along with recent work of all the Girls.
