Product Description

Details

This poster is a reproduction of one of thirty posters published in a portfolio entitled Guerrilla Girls Talk Back by the group of anonymous American female artists who call themselves the Guerrilla Girls. This print is part of the Whitney's 2017 exhibition An Incomplete History of Protest.

This print is based on the 1989 poster that asks ‘Do women have to be naked to get into the Met. Museum?’ above a reclining naked woman who wears a gorilla mask. The image is based on the famous painting by Jean-Auguste-Dominique Ingres (1780-1867) entitled Odalisque and Slave (1842, Walters Art Gallery, Baltimore) and accompanied by the facts: ‘less than 5% of the artists in the Modern Art Sections are women, but 85% of the nudes are female’. The poster was originally designed to be a billboard commissioned by the Public Art Fund in New York, but it was rejected on grounds of not being clear enough.

Poster is 11" x 24". Shipped in a poster tube.
