The gallery’s new season will be inaugurated with an exhibition revisiting the aesthetics of militant feminist groups and to do so has extended an invitation to two of them: “The Guerrilla Girls and La Barbe”.

Whilst not forgetting their reason for taking up arms nor the enemy they are fighting, from the 9th of September to the 22nd of October 2016 at mfc-michèle didier, we will instead put their tools of combat on show.

Although they need no introduction, it seems right to quickly recall the roots of two activist groups who, armed with piliferous postiches, took up the gauntlet against any bylaws on bristle!
In 1985, The Guerrilla Girls made a startling observation: of the 169 artists featured in the MoMA exhibition “An International Survey of Recent Painting and Sculpture, only a small minority were women or artists of colour.
