Guerilla Girls Take on #Metoo at the Museums
They want to help art museums get caught up to date with #MeToo...
Entertainment 15 Oct 2018

Feminist art collective Guerrilla Girls want to help art museums get caught up to date with #MeToo, and exposing sexual abuse in the art world.
Their latest artwork is a series of wall labels that looks at artist Chuck Close, who was accused by several women for sexually inappropriate behavior, and his 2006 portrait of Bill Clinton which is on view at the National Portrait Gallery in Washington.

The girls offer three different wall labels when the artist is a predator; from the “Afraid of alienating billionaire trustees and collectors” category to “conflicted” to museums needing “help from the Guerrilla Girls.” Rules do apply to the “genius white male artist,” they write.
