The UND Department of Art and Design is pleased to present “The Art of Behaving Badly”, an exhibition of provocative posters, videos, and publications created by the Guerrilla Girls that expose discrimination and corruption in the institutional art world. The Guerrilla Girls are an anonymous group of activist artists who use humor and shocking visuals to expose bias and corruption in politics, art, film, and pop culture. They wear gorilla masks in public and assume the names of deceased female artists as pseudonyms to maintain anonymity.

The “Art of Behaving Badly” exhibition chronicles the advocacy work of the Guerrilla Girls by showcasing a collection of their impactful and iconic works that critique institutional practices in contemporary art. The exhibition is generously supported by the Myers Foundations.

An opening reception will be held on April 14 from 4:00-6:00 p.m. The exhibition is free and open the public. The Memorial Union Gallery is open Monday through Friday from 9:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m. The exhibition is on view through July 15.
