The BMA presents a selection of works from the Portfolio Compleat (1985-2012) by the New York-based Guerrilla Girls. This group of anonymous women artists have produced over the course of 30 years a body of work that includes posters, stickers, books, printed projects, and actions that expose sexism and racism in politics, the art world, film, and culture at large. They appear in public wearing gorilla masks and use humor to convey information, provoke discussion, and show that feminists can be funny.
