***NEW VENUE! Join us at Telfair Peet Theatre. ****
In celebration of the 125th anniversary of the first women matriculating to Auburn University, JCSM has invited the Guerrilla 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 guerrilla 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, the Guerrilla 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.
Open parking will be available at the museum (901 South College Street) with a limited courtesy shuttle by Tiger Transit running to the theatre between 4:30 to 8:30 p.m. Before 5 p.m., guests may also park at the top of the stadium parking deck, located at the end of Duncan Drive a short walk from the theatre. For more information, call 334-844-1484.
