Guerrilla Girls team up with South London Gallery for Acts of Resistance

A billboard campaign organised by feminist activists has been unveiled across the capital to coincide with the South London Galleries (SLG) latest exhibition.

The Guerrilla Girls have partnered up with the SLG and BUILDHOLLYWOOD on this outdoor display, drawing attention to Acts of Resistance: Photography, Feminisms and the Art of Protest.

The exhibition has just launched at the Peckham based Gallery in Peckham Road, and will run until June 9.

Organised in collaboration with the V&A, Acts of Resistance brings together works by international artists and collectives that challenge traditional protest photography. 

It explores feminism and activism by looking at different approaches to protest from the past 10 years.

Artwork on display shows the overlapping nature of oppression and examines the internet as a tool of protest and transnational solidarity. 

Guerrilla Girls is an anonymous group of feminist, female artists devoted to fighting sexism and racism within the art world. 

The group formed in New York City in 1985, born out of a picket against the Museum of Modern Art the previous year. 

The core of the group’s work is bringing gender and racial inequality into focus within the greater arts community.

To remain anonymous, and to reference the idea of ‘guerrilla’ tactics, members wear gorilla masks. 

Their public display will appear across sites close to SLG and the V&A from March 4 to 17.
