GUERRILLA GIRLS COLLECTION TO LAUNCH AT MoMA DESIGN STORE
The Guerrilla Girls and Third Drawer Down Studio introduce a unique range of products that will be available at the MoMA Design Store beginning October 27, 2015.
The Guerrilla Girls collection, making art accessible to everyone, features some of the masked crusaders’ most provocative and applauded pieces. The products question the role of the cultural souvenir in today’s art world, and can be seen and used as both a functional domestic product and as an artwork to be framed and displayed.
The collection includes:
‘Advantages of being a Woman Artist’ Cotton screen printed Tea Towel,
‘Dear Art Collector’ Cotton Handkerchief,
‘Do Women have to be naked to get into the Met.?’ Fine Bone China Mug,
“We need more women artists in the art world and on museum walls!,” exclaims founding director of Third Drawer Down Studio, Abigail Crompton.
The Guerrilla Girls’ work is included in the collection of The Museum of Modern Art. Their products will launch exclusively with the MoMA Design Store at the MoMA Design and Book Store and www.MoMAstore.org on October 27, 2015. Third Drawer Down Studio Melbourne will also carry the collection in its retail stores and online.
On Tuesday, October 27, the MoMA Design Store will celebrate the launch of the collection with a signing at the MoMA Design and Book Store, 11 W 53rd Street, NY, NY. Guerrilla Girls Frida Kahlo and Zuberida Agha will be in attendance and available for interviews.

ABOUT GUERRILLA GIRLS
The Guerrilla Girls are a group of anonymous artists who wear gorilla masks in public and use facts, humor and outrageous visuals to expose discrimination and corruption in art, film, politics, and pop culture. In 30 years, they have come up with over a hundred posters, street projects, actions, books, and billboards. Most recently they did a stealth campaign in New York about the super rich hijacking art, and a wall in Reykjavik about discrimination in the Icelandic film industry. Their retrospective in Madrid has drawn thousands of people. Coming up – street and museum projects all over Minneapolis. They travel the world doing gigs and workshops, inspiring others to create their own effective activist campaigns.
