Guerrilla Girls: Not Ready to Make Nice Exhibit

Guerrilla Girls: Not Ready to Make Nice Exhibit

Presented by Verge Center for the Arts at Verge Center for the Arts

Not Ready to Make Nice, a major presentation of the Guerrilla Girls, illuminates and contextualizes the important historical and ongoing work of these highly original, provocative and influential artists who champion feminism and social change. Focusing primarily on recent work from the past decade, the exhibition features rarely shown international projects that trace the collective’s artistic and activist influence around the globe. In addition, a selection of iconic work from the 80s and 90s illustrates the formative development of the group’s philosophy and conceptual approach to arts activism.

The exhibition is further punctuated by documentary material including ephemera from famous actions, behind-the-scenes photos and secret anecdotes that reveal the Guerrilla Girls’ process and the events that drive their incisive institutional interventions. Visitors can peruse the artists’ favorite “love letters and hate mail,” and are invited to contribute their own voices to multiple interactive installations.
