Drawing on the themes of individual spirit and collective power, this panel will explore the resonances between the individual practices of Nancy Brooks Brody, Joy Episalla, Zoe Leonard, and Carrie Yamaoka and their collective artistic output as fierce pussy in the context of ICA’s presentation of arms ache avid aeon: fierce pussy amplified, the fifth chapter of a cycle of exhibitions originating at the Beeler Gallery at Columbus College of Art and Design. Perspectives from art historians and the exhibition curators, as well as the presence of the artists themselves, will lend insight to the artists’ practices and their continued efforts toward challenging boundaries and visibility.
