During Oh, Museum our Project Space will invite audience interaction with a new iteration of ‘Complaints Department,’ an ongoing installation by anonymous feminist art collective the Guerrilla Girls.
In ‘Complaints Department’ members of the public, arts workers, organisations and anyone in-between are invited to write complaints about art, politics, representation, the environment or any other pertinent issues, directly onto gallery walls.
The Guerrilla Girls are an anonymous collective of artists, who work against sexism and racism in the art world. Fighting systemic under-representation of female and P.O.C artists in exhibitions, collections and institutional processes, they draw attention to these disparities and imagine creative methods for repatriation. Known for their adoption of pseudonyms, referring to deceased female artists, and for wearing distinct gorilla masks in public, the collective remain anonymous, to divert attention away from their identities and towards the politics of their work.
Chalk is provided for the duration of Oh, Museum for the audience to lodge complaints and create a dialogue in Cement Fondu’s Project Space.
