Summer Session – Guerrilla Girls Talk the History of Art vs. the History of Power

Today for our Summer Session topic of celebrity, we bring you an interview from The Late Show with Stephen Colbert with the feminist art activists the Guerrilla Girls. Colbert and the Guerrilla Girls talk about the ways in which institutional power limits the possibilities for representation in museums and galleries, thereby shaping the narrative of art history and also popular taste. Moreover, the interview itself is an intriguing overlapping of celebrity engagement with feminist activism. This video was originally uploaded on January 14, 2016.
