Guerrilla Girls Records
Series I. Poster projects, 1985-1995, undated 31.53 Linear Feet 7 boxes, 19 flatfiles (8 ff. drawers)
The series comprises the file folders of 8.5 x 11 inch photocopies, the posters that were plastered on walls in New York or framed for exhibition, photographs, photomechanicals, and in some cases, paste-ups or early drafts. The posters are one of three sizes, here noted as large (24 x 30 inches), medium (17 x 22), and small (11 x 10 1/2), though there is some size variation within each category. Includes the following oversize containers: 86*, 87*, 90*, flat files 1**, 3**, 7**-9**, 11**-19**. The large acetate negatives listed below were used in the production of the posters.
Arrangement note
Guerrilla Girls posters are arranged according to the group's own title/date chronological filing system, which remained fairly consistent until 1990, when the sequence was altered several times. Titles are usually a shortened version of the poster's first line.
