Act Like a Feminist Artist:
a Guerrilla Girl On Tour Unmasks
Aphra Behn tours the world with Act Like A Feminist Artist – an interactive talk/inside scoop of what it is like to be a feminist masked avenger.
Ever wonder what it’s like to be a feminist masked avenger? Aphra Behn shares her experiences as a feminist activist for gender parity in the performing art world for 20 years as a member of the Guerrilla Girls. Her journey to feminist artist began when she moved to New York City to pursue a career in theatre and got sidetracked in a three-year violent relationship with a famous actor. Always an outsider, she took one step further into invisibility and became a Guerrilla Girl, a feminist activist who never appears in public without wearing a rubber gorilla mask and who uses the name of a dead woman artist to provoke change. As the Guerrilla Girl, Aphra Behn, she created comedic art and theater that blasted the blatant sexism of the theater world while proving feminists are funny at the same time. “Act Like A Feminist Artist” discusses the posters, protests, fax blitzes, speak outs and street theatre actions created by the Girls, coupled with readings from passages of Aphra’s new memoir, “UN/MASKED, Memoirs of a Guerrilla Girl On Tour,” (Skyhorse, November 1, 2016). Get the inside scoop from a woman-turned-survivor-turned-radical-feminist who takes off her mask and, by merging her identities, reveals all.
