We are proud to present Guerrilla Girls: Conscience of the Art World in the Herman Graphic Arts Room as part of the commemoration of the 100th anniversary of coeducation at William & Mary and in Virginia. In 2017, the Museum acquired the Guerrilla Girls Portfolio Compleat, a portfolio that contains over 150 posters and projects created by the Guerrilla Girls from 1985 through 2016. Since 1985 and even more stridently today, the Guerrilla Girls have been concerned with broader discrimination; particularly social oppression related to race, class, and gender. In this exhibition you will see how the Guerrilla Girls use a combination of humor, advertising styled graphics and statistics to openly protest the imbalance of men and women artists in galleries and museums worldwide.
