Guerrilla Girls launch art protest targeting MFA
The truck carrying a 200-square-foot billboard of a nude woman with a gorilla’s head drove up to the Museum of Fine Arts front entrance. “Do women have to be naked to get into Boston museums?” a message on the image read, with a line noting that only 11 percent of the artists represented in the MFA’s collection were women. The Guerrilla Girls, famous for decades of protesting art world inequalities, had come to town. The collective is featured in a show at the Montserrat College of Art Gallery in Beverly through December.
