ArtScene features "Guerrilla Girls: Art in Action" by Liz Goldner

One poster in the exhibition "Guerrilla Girls: Art in Action" proclaims, "Women in America Earn Only 2/3 of What Men Do. Women Artists Earn Only 1/3 of What Men Artists Do." Another poster, featuring a naked woman wearing a gorilla mask, reads, "Do women have to be naked to get into the Met Museum? Less than 4% of the artists in the Modern Art sections are women, but 76% of the nudes are female." A third poster cites astonishing statistics favoring male artists as exhibitors in New York museums. These are a few of several pieces in this show chronicling the Guerrilla Girls art collective, begun in New York City in 1985, and promoting a satirical, in-your-face perspective on the male-female disparity in the art world.
