Guerrilla Girls to appear at East Central University in Ada, OK

OKLAHOMA CITY, OK -- On Thursday, Nov. 20, at 7:00 pm the Guerrilla Girls will present a multimedia lecture and skit at East Central University's Ataloa Theatre in Ada, OK.

The Guerrilla Girls call themselves "feminist masked avengers," as they discuss sexism, racism, and corruption in the realms of politics, art, film, and pop culture.  For nearly 30 years this group of female artists has donned gorilla masks in public while dramatizing women's history and addressing the lack of opportunities for women and artists of color.

The presentation promises to include "facts, humor, and outrageous visuals" as the Guerrilla Girls discuss their three decades of activism and their attempts to redefine what they call the "stale, male, pale, Yale" perspective on art history.  The group has produced countless posters, billboards, and bumper stickers, along with several books and appearances at nearly 100 museums and universities.

Funding for the event will be provided in part by the Oklahoma Humanities Council.  The event is free and open to the public; for more information, contact tchubb@ecok.edu.
