The Guerrilla Girls (GG)
 
is an anonymous group of female artists who use facts, humor and outrageous (but fun) visuals ​to speak about gender and ethnic bias in the arts (which includes film and pop culture). Formed in New York City in 1985, the GG wear gorilla masks in public, hiding their identity in order to keep the focus on the issues, and because in theory, we are and can all be GG who want to draw attention to the gender inequality that exists not in perception but in institutional structures.

This will be their inaugural visit to Asia and we are proud that they have agreed to have their first performance in Asia at The University of Hong Kong.

Dr Tristram Hunt, Director of the Victoria & Albert Museum, discusses how the Museum’s founding commitment to art, education and industry continues to define its purpose today. From the new Exhibition Road Quarter and the V&A Gallery in Shenzhen, to exhibitions on embroidery, Ocean Liners and Opera, the V&A’s past bridges its future. Tracing the Museum’s genesis from its Victorian roots in the Design School Movement of the 1830s and its establishment as the Museum of Manufactures in 1852, he considers how the V&A’s British, Germanic, Indian and Oriental origins have engendered a world-class collection: a cultural lens to consider the Museum’s evolving place in the world today. Dr. Hunt explores how museums can retain their relevance and purpose in our contemporary age of Brexit, Netflix and digital technology.
