Nancy Brooks Brody Death: New York City, NY gay activist and Fierce Pussy projects founding member has died

Nancy Brooks Brody Death – New York City, NY community mourns the death of a community member and founding member of Fierce Pussy Projects who passed away suddenly. Nancy Brooks Brody died unexpectedly leaving her family and friends devastated.

Nancy Brooks Brody was born in Manhattan. She has had several solo shows, including one at the Fortnight Institute in New York City, NY (2018). She has also taken part in numerous group shows, including The Exquisite Corpse, The Drawing Center, New York, NY (1993); Le Regard de L’Autre, Musee des Beaux-Arts de Rouen, Rouen, France (2002); Art & Activism, Kunst und politischer Aktivismus in New York, Mannheimer Kunstverein, Mannheim, Germany (2014); and Confinement: Politics of Space and Bodies, Contemporary Arts Center, Cincinnati, OH (2019).

Fierce Pussy is a group of LGBT female artists. Founded in New York City in 1991 as a result of our involvement in AIDS activism amid a decade of growing political mobilization for gay rights, ferocious pussy brought lesbian identity and visibility directly onto the streets.

The collective responded to the urgency of those years using low-tech and low-budget resources: ancient typewriters, found images, our own baby pictures, and the printing supplies and equipment available in our day jobs.

Wheat pasting posters on the street, renaming New York City streets after prominent lesbian heroines, redesigning the restroom at the LGBT community center, printing and distributing stickers and t-shirts, a greeting card campaign, a video PSA, and, more recently, various installations and exhibitions in galleries and museums were among fierce pussy’s projects.

Originally, ferocious pussy was made up of a merry band of dykes that included Pam Brandt, Jean Carlomusto, Donna Evans, Alison Froling, and Suzanne Wright. Many additional women attended the meetings and participated with wheat paste, stenciling, and stickering. Nancy Brooks Brody, Joy Episalla, Zoe Leonard, and Carrie Yamaoka, four of the original core members, continue to collaborate.

The Family will release Nancy Brooks Brody’s Obituary and Funeral Arrangements
