Artist Talk: Caroline Paquita
Spend your lunch break with an artist.
Join us for an in-depth discussion with Caroline Paquita about zines, art, and life during her 20-year career. Explore works in the special Betty Boyd Dettre Library and Research Center exhibition Womanimal: Zine Art by Caroline Paquita.
ABOUT THE ARTIST:
Caroline Paquita (b. 1980) is a Brooklyn-based artist, zinester, and founder of Pegacorn Press. Her first self-published zine, Brazen Hussy, used xerography like other punk zines of the 1990s, but it already shows evidence of Paquita’s distinctive aesthetic, which features strong line work.
ABOUT THE EXHIBITION:
Paquita’s recent work has focused on envisioning “Womanimals”—half-woman/half-animal creatures that seek to interject a queered whimsy and irreverence into distracted modern culture.
