Guerrilla Girls

GG in The Mistress , the Spider & the Tangerine

For the occasion of the Louise Bourgeois retrospective at the Guggenheim NY, Film Forum in New York is showing "Louise Bourgeois: The Mistress, the Spider and the Tangerine" until July 8th, 2008. For this movie portrait of the artist, the documentary filmmakers (the late Marion Cajori and Amei Wallach) interviewed the Guerrilla Girls, who rightfully hail Louise Bourgeois as a pioneer.
The Guerrilla Girls helped pave the way for women artists (and collectives like this one). Because the Guerrilla Girl might be unknown to the next generation, posted here -for the purpose of (re)acquaintance- are a link to an interview with GG and a few of the classic posters authored by the Guerrilla Girls:
