The Guerrilla Girls have fought for gender and race equality while condemning corruption for nearly 30 years. Sometimes the slow pace of change is overwhelming, but the women in the collective keep putting on their gorilla masks and making art.
Two representatives from the group under the aliases Frida Kahlo and Zubeida Agha will visit Milwaukee Institute of Art and Design and give a public presentation Feb. 22 and a student workshop Feb. 23. The Guerrilla Girls formed in the 1980s as an anonymous feminist activist artist collective to expose gender and ethnic bias in the arts and politics. Members take the names of historical female artists, don gorilla masks and protest through art.
