Left - Krzysztof Wodiczko, Right - Guerrilla Girls

FREE
All advance tickets for this program have been claimed. Don’t worry! We always save a select number of seats for walk-ups, on a first-come, first served basis.


Join us for a thought-provoking discussion with acclaimed artists Guerrilla Girls and Krzysztof Wodiczko, two of the nearly 70 influential figures with works in the Hirshhorn’s newest exhibition, Brand New: Art & Commodity in the 1980s. Since that pivotal decade, both artists have used their craft as a platform to inspire conversation about societal issues. The Guerrilla Girls are an iconic bedrock of feminist activism, with highly visible projects that expose bias and corruption in the world, and Wodiczko is similarly known for his large-scale projections on architectural façades that examine ideas about human rights and democracy.

The artists will be joined by Curator-At-Large Gianni Jetzer to discuss the continued impact of their work in contemporary public discourse.

We encourage you to arrive early. Ring Auditorium seating is limited. Any open seats may be released to walk-up visitors 10 minutes before the program.
