The Male Graze is the Guerilla Girls’ largest public commission in the UK to date. The Male Gaze explores bad male behaviour focussing on, but not limited to, explorations of British artists and British collections. The work will manifest as a website, a live gig and a national series of billboards realised in partnership with galleries and institutions across the country.
The Guerrilla Girls (est.1985) in New York live and work in LA and New York. The group employs culture jamming in the form of posters, books, billboards, and public appearances to expose discrimination and corruption. Find out more about their work here.
The work will manifest as a series of billboards in towns and cities including: Eastbourne, Dundee, Birmingham, Glasgow, Liverpool, Cardiff, Warwick, Swansea, London and more. The billboards will be on display in partnership with Compton Verney, Dundee Contemporary Arts, Glasgow Women’s Library, g39, Glynn Vivian Art Gallery, Grand Union, The Tetley and Towner Eastbourne. Art Night will also present this commission in two London sites in Shoreditch and London Bridge.
