Guerrilla Girls

'Do women have to be naked to get into the Metropolitan Museum in New York?' This is possibly the most well-known line to come from Guerrilla Girls, a group of anonymous artists that emerged in the '80s on both sides of the Atlantic and that called attention to the structural nature of the difference in sexes in the institution of art.

Matadero Madrid hosts this retrospective of about 70 large-format posters, a projection, books and other documents. The exhibition confronts the belief that the field of art is terrain of social vanguard and exposes its conservative nature and sexist condition.

An international reference on denouncing sexism for 30 years using facts, humour and gorilla masks.
