Battle cry

This exhibition functions as a bookend to the gallery’s inaugural exhibition from 2014, Ex-Y: Representations of Contemporary Masculinity, observing depictions of maleness after three waves of feminism. Using pseudonyms of historically significant female artists and donning gorilla masks, the Guerrilla Girls employ anonymity in their mission to expose cultural misogyny and discrimination. The artist-activist group serves as vigilantes and conscience for all realms of the art industry, in both public and private sectors. This exhibition is not only a celebratory survey of their work over the past three decades, but is also a mirror revealing the past, present, and future of what being ‘women in the arts’ entails: warfare with our own brethren and at its most heartbreaking, our sistren. The Guerrilla Girls, by their name sake, present an aestheticization of war. For those with the courage to partake, art is war.
