October 29–30, 2015 GUERRILLA GIRLS RESIDENCY AT SMITH COLLEGE With a selection of Guerrilla Girls posters displayed in Women’s Work, representatives of this anonymous artists’ collective were invited to campus for a two–day residency, organized by Emma Cantrell, and coordinated in collaboration with the Smith student organization Feminists of Smith Unite! Guerrilla Girls members “Frida Kahlo” and “Zubeida Agha,” (who take the names of deceased women artists) visited Smith in October and participated in the following programs: PUBLIC PERFORMANCE More than 500 members of the Smith and local community attended a live performance by these famed, feminist artists. At the end of their presentation, the Guerrilla Girls welcomed questions from the audience, generating a lively conversation about inequity in the art world, the history of the 30-year-old collective and activism today. LUNCH WITH STUDENTS & ARTISTS On the second day of the residency, students from the Art Department and Feminists of Smith Unite! joined the Guerrilla Girls for lunch. The two Guerrilla Girls in residence shared stories of art-making and activism, and were interested to hear about the student experience at a women’s college. “AESTHETICIZE YOUR ACTIVISM”— STUDENT WORKSHOP On the final afternoon of their residency, the Guerrilla Girls led a workshop entitled “Aestheticize Your Activism.” The 30 participants were grouped according to their favored social causes and then got to work developing a Guerrilla Girls–style artistic intervention. The Girls offered words of wisdom and constructive criticism, and by the end of the day several groups walked away with activist projects they hoped to put into action. ANONYMOUS STUDENT FEEDBACK FOLLOWING THE ARTIST RESIDENCY “I loved that the Guerrilla Girls visit was initiated by Smith student interest! Very cool to know the institution is listening to what the students have to say and putting those ideas into action.” “I liked that the Guerrilla Girls were addressing issues that directly impact our world. Everything felt very topical and relevant. I would like to see more connections between social justice and art from future artists.” ON VIEW WOMEN’S WORK: FEMINIST ART FROM THE COLLECTION SEPTEMBER 11, 2015–JANUARY 3, 2016 ABOVE: Artist Martha Wilson presents a public talk
