****NEW VENUE! MORE FREE TICKETS! Due to popular demand and with special thanks to the Department of Theatre, we are moving our one girl gig to the Telfair Peet Theatre!***
In celebration of the 125th anniversary of the first women matriculating to Auburn University, JCSM has invited the Guerilla Girls for a “one girl gig.”
Since 1985 a group of anonymous feminist women artists from New York City have been publically calling attention to the inequities of the art world. Donning gorilla masks and taking pseudonyms of dead women artists, the group employs guerilla tactics, inundating public spheres with posters, books, stickers, and performances exposing the scarcity of women artists in museums and galleries and the over-representation of the female body in the same places.
During her performance at JCSM, the Guerilla Girl will talk about, among other things, how they invaded the Oscars with a billboard and sticker campaign about discrimination in Hollywood, and about their 17-foot posters at the 2005 Venice Biennale.
