Painter, sculptor, mother Louise Bourgeois is a woman who refuses to live in the shadows of timidity or compromise for her art. Bourgeois has been a magnetic figure for art critics, specifically feminist art historians and theorists since the mid- 1970s. She goes against the narrative of the timid artist, creating pieces which are repellent and sinister as well as erotic and sensual.
Now more than ever is activism needed. Sex, activism and art have a beautiful relationship. They fight for what is right in a provocative way and it gets the job done.
Guerrilla Girls are no exception to the rule. An anonymous female feminist group of artists dedicated to fighting sexism and racism in the world of art.
