Poster, The Advantages of Being a Woman Artist, 1988

This is a Poster. It is dated 1988 and we acquired it in 2009. Its medium is photo-offset lithograph on paper. It is a part of the Drawings, Prints, and Graphic Design department.

The Guerrilla Girls, founded in 1985, are a group of anonymous female graphic designers who combine substantive content with eye-catching graphics to present feminist viewpoints in a sly, ironic way. The Advantages of Being a Woman Artist is proposed for acquisition along with another Guerrilla Girls poster; the pair would be the first posters by this design group to enter the collection.

This object was donated by Marc Benda. It is credited Gift of Sara and Marc Benda.

Its dimensions are

43.1 x 56 cm (16 15/16 x 22 1/16 in.)
