We were thrilled when the Tate Modern commissioned us to do a film on the infamous Guerrilla Girls. Since the 1980s, the masked women have anonymously called out galleries, museums, and magazines for their lack of representation of women and racial diversity in the arts. With the same affect of fury and urgency as the Guerrilla Girls, this short video collages the history of the activist group's art being plastered all over the streets, on billboards, and even displayed in the very museums from whom they have demanded action. Their work planted the seed and opened the conversation around representation of women in the arts and the deep-seated societal structures that continue to keep gender and racial oppression in place.
