Anonymous Feminist Collective Guerrilla Girls Descend on Hong Kong
Why We Recommend it
A group of feminist artists hailing from New York who use facts and humour to draw attention to gender and ethnic inequalities and bias in the art world will speak in Hong Kong for the first time.
Formed in New York City in 1985, the Guerrilla Girls (GG) wear gorilla masks in public, hiding their identity in order to keep the focus on the issues they want to confront.
Through their anonymity, they also express the idea that the GG addresses issues and perceptions that relate to everyone. They also want to draw attention to how gender inequalities go beyond perception and inform institutional structures.
On their inaugural visit they will speak as part of Hong Kong University‘s ‘Behind the Scenes’ Lecture Series. They will also make appearances at Art Basel as part of Asia Art Archive’s program drawing attention to women in art.
