Through their use of bold graphics, statistics, and irreverent humor, the Guerrilla Girls have been exposing inequalities within the art world (and the world) with witty posters, performances, and guerrilla tactics since they became active in 1985. This exhibition includes a selection of posters donated by a former Guerilla Girl in 2010 to the Miriam Schapiro Archives on Women Artists, which are housed in Rutgers University Libraries Special Collections and University Archives, as well as a selection of work by the coalition of women who were aligned with the group. Artists in the exhibition include: Pat Adams, Emma Amos, Ida Applebroog, Jackie Ferrara, Bonnie Lucas, Howardena Pindell, Joan Semmel, and Joan Snyder. The exhibition coincides with an event featuring the Guerrilla Girls to be held at the Zimmerli on a date to be announced.
