GUERRILLA GIRLS ON TOUR AT
FORM/SPACE ATELIER IS SPONSORED BY POSTER GIANT !
Form/Space Atelier celebrates their second Guerrilla Girls exhibition (2013 being the first), and the 14th edition of a Feminist Eclat, an annual exhibit that has included art objects from the office of Gloria Steinem, a separate exhibition of the artwork of Joanna Salska, Steinem's portraitist and a paintings exhibit by feminist and former Playboy Playmate Juliette Frette.
In 1985, a group of women artists founded the Guerrilla Girls. They assumed the names of dead women artists and wore gorilla masks in public, concealing their identities and focusing on the issues rather than their personalities. Between 1985 and 2000, close to 100 women, working collectively and anonymously, produced posters, billboards, public actions, books and other projects to make feminism funny and fashionable. This exhibit was organized by Guerilla Girls On Tour, one of three entities affiliated with Guerilla Girls.
Guerrilla Girls On Tour, Inc., is a touring theatre collective founded by three former members of the Guerrilla Girls. GGOT develops original plays, performances and workshops, street theatre actions and residency programs that dramatize women’s history and address the lack of opportunities for women and artists of color in the performing arts.
