G I R L - Curated by Pharrell Williams

Galerie Perrotin, Salle de Bal | May 27 - June 25, 2014

The Guerrilla Girls were asked by Pharrell to be in an exhibition called G I R L at Galerie Perrotin Paris. We said ok, ONLY if we could show two new posters: one about women in music and another about women artists at Perrotin.

After watching lots of videos we had a question for Pharrell: why DO WOMEN HAVE TO BE NAKED TO GET INTO MUSIC VIDEOS WHILE 99% OF THE GUYS ARE DRESSED? We did a remix one of our classic posters with a still from Robin Thicke's Blurred Lines.

Then we turned our steely eyes on the Perrotin Gallery. Sure, 50% of the artists in the G I R L exhibition are women, but since 2010 only 13% of solo exhibitions have been by women artists. We grafittied one of our early posters to show that not much has changed: BUS COMPANIES ARE STILL MORE ENLIGHTENED THAN ART GALLERIES.
