The Guerrilla Girls Twin Cities Takeover is a festival organized by a consortium of Twin Cities arts and cultural organizations in celebration of the Guerrilla Girls’ 30th anniversary as an activist art collective. Join us for the kickoff events—a multi-venue program hosted by the Walker, the Minneapolis College of Art and Design (MCAD), and the Minneapolis Institute of Art (Mia).
Taking a cue from Guerrilla Girls workshops held in 2015, the Walker Art Center Teen Arts Council (WACTAC) presents a panel discussion with local artists and organizers working for social change. Visit the Walker’s Art at the Center exhibition, where a selection of Guerrilla Girls posters from the recently acquired archive Portfolio Compleat is currently on view. Then head to MCAD for two exhibition receptions and a student performance, and after that to Mia for the Third Thursday: Art of Rebellion, inspired by the Guerrilla Girls.
