Exhibition - Guerrilla Girls: The Art of Behaving Badly - Εικόνα

The Stavros Niarchos Foundation Cultural Center presents “The Art of Behaving Badly”, as part of the WOW Athens 2023.  “The Art of Behaving Badly” exhbition includes 38 pieces from their work (posters, actions, stickers, postcards, videos) created by the Guerrilla Girls that raise awareness of discriminatory practices in the visual arts.

The Guerrilla Girls are anonymous artist activists who use disruptive headlines, outrageous visuals and killer statistics to expose gender and ethnic bias and corruption in art, film, politics and pop culture. They believe in an intersectional feminism that fights for human rights for all people. They undermine the idea of a mainstream narrative by revealing the understory, the subtext, the overlooked, and the downright unfair. They have done hundreds of projects (street posters, banners, actions, books, and videos) all over the world.

They also do interventions and exhibitions at art museums, blasting them on their own walls for their bad behavior and discriminatory practices, including a stealth projection on the façade of the Whitney Museum about income inequality and the super rich hijacking art. Their retrospectives and traveling exhibitions have attracted thousands.

Their latest book, Guerrilla Girls: The Art of Behaving Badly collects hundreds of our projects from 1985 to 2020, and was named one of the best art books of 2020 by The New York Times and the Los Angeles Times.  Recently their work was at Tate Modern and Whitechapel Gallery, London; São Paulo Museum of Art; the Venice Biennale; Van Gogh Museum, Amsterdam; Museum of Military History, Dresden; Art Basel Hong Kong; and many other places. Their motto: Do one thing. If it works, do another. If it doesn’t, do another anyway. Keep chipping away!
