What's New and Happening at the Guggenheim for the Discriminating Art Lover?

New York: Guerrilla Girls, 1992. 11 3/16 x 15 1/2" wax paper bag, printed on both recto and verso.

In their own words: "When the Guggenheim Museum opened a branch in SoHo, it was rumored that no women or artists of color had been chosen for the inaugural exhibit. With WAC, the Women's Action Coalition, we instigated a postcard-writing campaign that dumped thousands of these pink slips on the desk of Director Thomas Krens. Soon word reached us that sculptor Louise Bourgeois was to be included.

The night of the Guggenheim opening, WAC staged a big, noisy protest in front of the museum. Inspired by the old joke that a bag over a woman's head makes us all the same, we passed out gorilla bags for people to wear into the exhibit. Hundreds did, including Bourgeois." - from the Guerrilla Girls website [https://www.guerrillagirls.com/19921994-projects/1992guerillagirls-naturallaw].
