    Not Ready to Make Nice, a major presentation of the Guerrilla Girls, illuminates and contextualizes the important historical and ongoing work of these highly original, provocative and influential artists who champion feminism and social change. This multimedia, expansive exhibition illustrates that the work of the anonymous, feminist-activist Guerrilla Girls is as vital and revolutionary as ever.

    Focusing primarily on work from the past decade, the exhibition features rarely shown international projects that trace the collective’s artistic and activist influence around the globe. In addition, a selection of iconic work from the 80’s and 90’s illustrates the formative development of the group’s philosophy and conceptual approach to arts activism. The exhibition is further punctuated by documentary material including ephemera from famous actions, behind-the-scenes photos and secret anecdotes that reveal the Guerrilla Girls’ process and the events that drive their incisive institutional interventions.

    Spanning three galleries, artwork is organized by theme: Montserrat Gallery features work related to the visual art world of museums and galleries, Carol Schlosberg Alumni Gallery focuses on documentary materials. The October Frame 301 will feature a selection of their famous black and white posters.
