Guerrilla Girls

This work shows the boundaries women had to face before they had more rights. It was rare for art work by women or non-white artists to be shown and the Guerrilla Girls posters brought to light the issues that these artists faced. The posters were a quick and easy way to spread their message while the statistics were created by the Guerilla Girls themselves or reinterpreted from art magazines or other sources. Again their art represents social boundaries.

Necessary chin checks are necessary 

~as an art school student~ and ~professional artist~ honestly the situation is not much improved.

just observing the difference in treatment that men in art school get, from the treatment that women in art school get - shit’s ridiculous. White dudes painting pictures of more white people = fine art. Anything else = “niche” art. I can’t tell you the number of times I’ve had to deal with people looking at my work and saying, “Well, I guess it’s good, I just don’t like political art/feminist art/art that’s so PC”.

it’s fucking bullshit is what it is.
