Guerrillas In Our Midst takes a look behind the scenes of New York’s blue chip art market, and reveals how a contemporary art movement is “created.” The anonymous art activists, the Guerrilla Girls, provide a witty foil to SoHo’s business-as-usual, protesting the underrepresentation of women and non-white artists with satirical posters and their trademark gorilla masks.
