Dedicated to exposing discrimination in the art world, in politics and in the film and music industries, the Guerrilla Girls are an anonymous collective of feminist activist artists.

Formed as a collective more than 30 years ago, the Guerrilla Girls’ gorilla-mask costumes, bold visual language and frank, humorous messages have rendered them iconic in the history of art and as part of wider social movements.

'Guerrilla Girls: Reinventing the ‘F’ Word – Feminism!' follows the collective’s artistic practice from 1984 until 2016 and explores how they employ bold, fun and provocative poster art to criticise ongoing biases in art and society.
