GUERRILLA GIRLS' APPEARANCES
For years the Guerrilla Girls have been stirring up audiences with our presentations and workshops in full jungle drag. We have appeared at schools, museums and organizations of all types, in almost every state in the U.S. and on almost every continent. For a complete list, see “Lectures/ performances/ workshops” on our chronology page.
The performance lasts about an hour and a half, followed by a question period. We take the audience through how we came up with some of our many, many posters, books (The Guerrilla Girls Bedside Companion to the History of Western Art, Bitches, Bimbos and Ballbreakers: The Guerrilla Girls' Guide to Female Stereotypes, The Guerrilla Girls' Hysterical Herstory of Hysteria and How It Was Cured, From Ancient Times Until No ) and actions about discrimination in art, film, politics, etc.
In our performances for 2012-13, we will also be performing skits with the audience, and speaking about how we invaded the Oscars with billboard and sticker campaigns on discrimination in Hollywood. We'll tell all about our 17-foot posters in the 2005 Venice Biennale, Istanbul, Athens and Mexico City.
AESTHETICIZE YOUR ACTIVISM: WORKSHOPS & ONLINE SEMINARS
We also conduct workshops where we help students produce their own activist projects on issues that are important to them. Usually this is a half-day activity following a GG appearance. Plus, we’re developing new ways to conduct extended workshops through onsite residencies, internet conferencing and distance learning.

A pair of Guerrilla Girls, emissaries from a group of New York-based, feminist art activists, packed Loyola University's Roussel Hall last week with 600 enthusiastic fans. The two women, wearing gorilla masks, showed slides, performed satirical skits and regaled the crowd with tales of trench warfare fought against the mostly male art establishment. The show was sophisticated, sometimes self-deprecating and certainly inspirational to the eager audience. Doug MacCash, Art Critic, New OrleansTimes-Picayune
Thank you for inspiration in Helsinki! —Helsinki University student
You were fantastic at both events in Sao Paolo. Thank you, thank you, thank you! —Audience member at the Sao Paolo Bienal

It's really freeing to have some instruction about how to channel your feminism in a provocative way —Loyola workshop participant

Dear Guerrilla Girls: I recently caught a Guerrilla Girls' presentation and wanted to express how amazing an experience it was. Where else can one educate themselves on some serious subjects, share disgust with a whole audience, and find time to laugh one's ass off in one night? I also wanted to express my appreciation--as a human, an artist, and a person of colour--for what the GGs are working toward. Audience member, Vancouver
