Guerrilla Girls & La Barbe

Past: September 9 → November 10, 2016

From September 9 to November 12, 2016 mfc-­michèle didier presents an exceptional exhibition that honor two militant feminist groups: Guerrilla Girls and La Barbe.

In 1985, Guerrilla Girls made a startling observation: of the 169 artists features in the MoMA exhibition An International Survey of Recent Painting and Sculpture, only a small minority were woman or artists of colour. From that moment on the group unceasingly created poster campaigns, handouts, leaflets and other ephemera in the aim of “opening the public eye to the discrimination which reigns within our very phallo- and ethnocentric artistic institutions”.

Guerrilla Girls will be shown at mfc-michèle didier gallery with La Barbe, a group of feminists whose goal is to “render visible masculine domination in the highest spheres of power, in all the domains of professional, political and cultural life by ridiculing their codes, their values and their group spirit”.
