One of the world's most famous feminist art movement is honoured in this wide-ranging retrospective

Way before the #metoo era, New York feminist art collective Guerrilla Girls were shining a light into the murkiest corners of the global establishment with their posters, billboards, books, videos and lectures highlighting gender and racial inequality in the world of art, politics and popular culture. Now the group are having the last laugh, with their work collected by the very museums and galleries they mocked – including the Tate Modern in London, The Whitney in New York and the Venice Biennale. This retrospective brings together 129 of their most controversial and best-known works, spanning from their earliest days in 1985 to late 2016.
