Wild Creations Digital Access: Guerrilla Girls
Join the Museum of Fine Arts curatorial team as we explore artwork by women artists in the museum’s collection. Wild Creations is designed to showcase the powerful contributions of women artists throughout history, while offering participants an opportunity to examine structural forces that have led to inequality in the art world.
In Workshop 1, we’re highlighting the activist artist group known as the Guerrilla Girls. To get started, watch this video with MFA Curator of Contemporary Art Katherine Pill discussing the artists and their works in our collection. Then, follow this lesson guide with a quiz to further explore how their message of promoting equality and representation for female artists impacted in the art word. Click here to submit your quiz answers to be eligible for prizes, and look for a special Wild Creations tour once our museum reopens!
Thank you for participating — and for becoming your very own Wild Creation.
