Guerrilla Girls BroadBand is a sister branch of the legendary activist collective Guerrilla Girls, Inc. After the 2001 ‘banana split,’ three separate groups formed: Guerrilla Girls, Inc., Guerrilla Girls BroadBand, and Guerrilla Girls on Tour, Inc. All wear gorilla masks and use the names of deceased women artists. As Guerrilla Girls stay focused on art and pop culture, ‘The Broads’ use their wit, web-based technologies and interactive multimedia events to combat sexism, racism and social injustice, focusing on such issues as workplace discrimination, armed forces recruitment tactics in schools, and abortion access. The ‘Broads’ work was presented as part of the Guerrilla Girls’ 30th anniversary exhibition at the Abrons Art Center, NYC, 2015; at Bruce High Quality Foundation University Gallery, NYC, 2015; Rutgers University, New Brunswick, NJ, 2011; CEPA, Buffalo, NY, 2009; Bronx Museum, NYC, 2008; White Columns, NYC, 2005; David Zwirner Gallery, NYC, 2003. They presented their performances at many universities, including at UCLA, 2007, and New York University, 2006.
