more about this artist   index of artists  
 
  fierce pussy defines itself as "a collective formed in 1991 in New York City by a group of queer women committed to creating public art and performing direct action around issues of lesbian identity and visibility."

"fp projects included: wheatpasting posters on the street, re-naming New York City streets after prominent lesbian heroines using stencils and spray paint, re-designing the restroom at the Gay and Lesbian Center, printing and distributing stickers and t-shirts, a greeting card campaign directed at Cardinal O'Connor and Senator D'Amato, and making our own moving billboard/truck."

"Active from 1991 to 1995, fierce pussy was composed of a fluid and often shifting cadre of dykes. Core members were Pam Brandt, Nancy Brooks Brody, Joy Episalla, Alison Froling, Zoe Leonard, Suzanne Wright and Carrie Yamaoka. There were also the many women who came to an occasional meeting, came out to wheatpaste, to stencil, to sticker, and to drive the truck around the city."

"Adamantly lo-tech, fast and low-budget, we relied on our own modest resources. We used our old typewriters, we used our own baby pictures, we used whatever material we could get donated, and we used the equipment at our day jobs to produce the work."

The fierce pussy collective encourages you to to copy, distribute, wheatpaste, and disseminate their posters and the images featured here.
