Not Ready to Make Nice: Guerrilla Girls in the Artworld and Beyond

December 06, 2014 - March 01, 2015
Virginia and Alfred Kennedy, Philip Henry Alston Jr. and Alonzo and Vallye Dudley Galleries

"Not Ready to Make Nice" illuminates and contextualizes the important historical and ongoing work of the Guerrilla Girls, 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 1980s and 1990s illustrates the formative development of the group’s philosophy and conceptual approach to arts activism. Documentary material includes 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. This multimedia, expansive exhibition illustrates that the work of the anonymous, feminist-activist Guerrilla Girls is as vital and revolutionary as ever.
