Fairfield County "It!" had an amazing art time meeting
Frida Kahlo & Zubeida Agha
two of the Guerrilla Girls at
"Guerilla Girls Take on Greenwich!"
at the Bruce Museum.
The Guerrilla Girls are Feminist Artists
that wear Guerrilla masks for anonymity
and take on the identity of deceased female artists
as they travel the globe
stirring the art world up about female artist representation and democracy!
Below is Zubeida Agha discussing the decision making process of the Guerrilla Girls when targeting art unjustice
and an exhibit in the Tate Modern in London which features the Guerrilla Girls
across from the Andy Warhol collection.
The Guerrilla Girls did a survey of artists in
The Metropolitan Museum of Art and
were outraged that only 5% of the artists represented in the
Modern Art Section were women,
but 85% of the nudes are female.
They believe that big money influences
what art gets into the larger art institutions and that strongly impacts which art gets more attention and therefore higher prices
(the artists selected by the museums also tend to be collected
by the big money influencers).
The Guerrilla Girls want art institutions to
reorganize and address the inequities in their art selection processes
and correct the ridiculous ratio
of male to female artists in their galleries.
Wine was offered by Val's Putnam Wines & Spirits
and tasty bites were offered throughout the mingle by the
Thank you Bruce Museum & Guerrilla Girls for
such a thought provoking art event and
raising our consciousness about woman art representation
and democracy in the art world!
