Join Assistant Curator Emma Jameson on a guided tour of the exhibition 'Guerrilla Girls: Reinventing the ‘F’ Word – Feminism!'

Dedicated to exposing discrimination in the art world and creative industries, the Guerrilla Girls is an anonymous collective of feminist activist artists. Formed as a collective more than 30 years ago, the Guerrilla Girls’ gorilla-mask costumes, bold visual language and frank, humorous messages have rendered them iconic in the history of art and as part of wider social movements. 'Guerrilla Girls: Reinventing the ‘F’ Word – Feminism!' follows the collective’s artistic practice from 1984 until 2016 and explores how they employ bold, fun and provocative poster art to criticise ongoing biases in art and society.

This is a Gallery Members-only talk. Limited capacity, booking required. If your membership includes a guest pass you can book for a plus-one.
