Jane Addams Hull-House Museum Presents:
THE GUERRILLA GIRLS
LEGENDARY FEMINIST ARTISTS & PROVOCATEURS
September 6, 6:30 PM
FREE, all are welcome
Illinois Room, Student Center East on UIC’s Campus
750 S. Halsted St.
The Guerrilla Girls are feminist masked avengers in the tradition of anonymous do-gooders like
Robin Hood, Wonder Woman and Batman. Wearing gorilla masks in public, and taking the names of dead women artists as pseudonyms, they use facts, humor and outrageous visuals to expose sexism, racism and corruption in politics, art, film, and pop culture.
Their interactive extravaganza follows the opening of Unfinished Business: Arts Education,
a new community-curated, participatory art exhibition that explores the importance of the arts
and insists on cultural rights for all. The exhibit features interviews with some of Chicago's most scintillating teaching artists juxtaposed with profiles of Hull-House arts education reformers;
the Hull-House Pop-up Print Shop, an installation co-curated by David Jones at Anchor Graphics, that will have a working relief printing press that visitors will use to print postcards designed by local artists; and a Community Loom, three floor-to-ceiling looms, designed and built by artist Alexis Ortiz. Visitors will be able to learn a simple Guatemalan weaving technique
and contribute to a large-scale woven map of Chicago.
Exhibit opens at 4:00 PM, September 6th, at 800 South Halsted Street.
