This exhibition celebrates 30 years of Women & Gender Studies at Augustana College through a celebration of 30+ years of Guerrilla Girls' actions, reminding us of the role that art can take in protest, activism and conversation around issues of gender, racial and economic justice. It featured works from Augustana Teaching Museum of Art's recent purchase of the Guerrilla Girls' Portfolio Compleat, as well as archival materials from Augustana's Special Collections on the Women & Gender Studies program.
This exhibition was curated with Sami Turner, a student at Western Illinois University's Museum Studies Program. Ms. Turner and I worked to choose works from the Guerrilla Girls' Portfolio Compleat, and write accompanying interpretive materials that encompassed their decades-long practice, situated the works within their historical moment, and connected these works to the contemporary moment and to our own community.
